  2. Click search, and in the search field typeTwo-Factor Authentication Required.
  3. Toggle on the setting.
  4. Click Save.
  5. In the Enable Two-Factor Authentication widget, scan the QR code with your device. Your device displays an authentication code.
  6. In the Code field, enter the authentication code.
  7. Click Verify.
