Social & Secure
Now you can connect your Changelly account to Twitter, Facebook and Google+ to access it quickly and seamlessly. Changelly is a place where you can exchange your cryptocurrencies with ease and confidence even if you are new to the world of crypto. We designed it that way and we are firmly committed to keeping it so.
Connect with social networks
With this update, you have a better and faster way to proceed with your exchange. We all know that rates may change dramatically in a matter of minutes or even seconds and it is crucial to take hold of the moment. Just link your account to the social networks and login without needing to type the password every time.
To link your social accounts to Changelly:
- Click your email in the upper right corner of the screen.
- Choose the network you want to link to your account.
- Sign in with the network.
To disconnect a social media account from Changelly, just press a cross next to it.
If you started by signing in with a social network, the email linked to this network will be used by default. You may change it later if you need.
Secure your account
We are also introducing 2-step Verification as a new way to protect your account’s activity. Always feel safe and confident about the privacy of your transactions and wallets addresses.
With 2-step Verification, you will need a special code to access your account via e-mail and to change your password. This code is generated in the Google Authenticator app on your mobile device every 30 seconds. It is a powerful tool to keep your account private as the potential offender will need to know your password AND have access to your phone to break into the account.
How to enable 2-step verification for your account
- Access your profile by clicking your email in the upper right corner of the screen.
- In the middle of the page you’ll see the column with 2-step Verification. Please read the information carefully before enabling this option.
- Click the “Enable” button as shown in the image above. You will see this picture.
- Download Google Authenticator app. It is available both for Android and iOS.
- Scan the QR code or type it into the app manually.
- Get the code for your account from the app, type it into the field and press “Enable” again.
- Your account is protected!
Now you will need to type the code generated in the app each time you want to log in to your account or change your password. If you want to disable the 2-step Verification, just enter your password and the code from Google Authenticator and press “Disable”.
Enjoy our new features and be safe as ever with Changelly!
