Bitcoin casino CoinRoyale has integrated two-factor authentication into its login system to improve the security of the account holders on this betting site.
The new security measure is made possible through the technology provided by Google via its Google Authenticator app optimized for both Android and Apple devices, and it requires the involvement of the bettors’ mobile phones in the login process.
“Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of protection above your normal password or quick login link by means of a verification code displayed on your phone,” explained in a post published on its official blog, The Royal Flush.
This means that customers will only be able to access their account if they have their smartphones with them, strengthening the protection of all CoinRoyale accounts from unauthorized access.
Patrons of this Bitcoin casino can experience its heightened level of protection only if they activate this feature for both registered and quick-registered accounts.
In order to set up CoinRoyale’s two-factor authentication, the Google Authenticator app must first be installed on the mobile device because it is responsible for generating verification codes for every instance players log in to their account.
The next steps to enable this security feature are to go to the account settings of the CoinRoyale account and to tick the ‘Enable two-factor authentication’ option. Meanwhile, the rest of the activation process will be completed with the use of the phone.
To fully activate the two-factor authentication for the CoinRoyale account, customers must scan the QR code provided by the casino, key in the generated six-digit code into the verification code field, and click on the ‘Enable’ button.
Although this added security feature further protects the account from possible threats online, activating it is not mandatory for all CoinRoyale clients. Moreover, it can be deactivated at any time.
