Log in to your Keepabit account. Go to your “Profile” on the top right side of the page.

Below is a guide to help you enable Google Authenticator to improve your Keepabit account security.
Step 1: Install Google Authenticator
Step 2: Scan QR Code with your Google Authenticator app
A QR code and 16-digit key will be shown on the page. Open your Google Authenticator app, click the symbol【+】on the top right-hand side to scan the QR code, or you can manually enter the ‘2FA 16-digit key.’
Step 3: Save the Backup key
Make sure to save the 16-digit key, which can be used to re-bind your account in case you no longer have access to your previous Google Authenticator.
Step 4: Authenticate
Once you scanned your unique QR code or added the code instead, please enter the generated digits from the 2FA (6-digit number).
How do I resolve a “binding failed” issue?
- Ensure that the “Google Authenticator” app is installed.
- Synchronize the time on your mobile phone and computer.
- Ensure the password and 2FA code are correct.
- Ensure the date/time setting in your mobile phone is set to “automatic”.
You may refer to the following screenshots to change the settings in your phone.
How do I re-enable Google Authenticator if I no longer have access to my previously installed Google Authenticator app?
If you have stored the 16-digit code which was generated when you enabled the Google Authenticator for the first time, you can re-enable your Google Authenticator by adding the key to the App manually.
