Where can I get one?

Get yours from Paytopia

How much do the devices cost?

The authenticator's have a one off cost of 35 NZDT including shipping and handling. 

How do they work?

The authenticator is tied to your account and generates one time pin numbers in a similar fashion to Google Authenticator.

What happens if I lose my device?

You can reset your two factor via the normal means through a support ticket. If you want a replacement authenticator you will have to buy another one.

Why is the code on my device not working?

Cryptopia,

If I use this device for login will it bypass the 'captcha' test ?

Thanks, Michael

 You're supposed to back that up when you set up 2FA. I wrote down my code on a piece of paper.

 Yeah there's a QR code that you can print out, or you could just write out the string of letters and numbers underneath it which is the same thing. It's the same idea with bitcoin private keys.

Your phone can get hacked which can compromise your 2FA- the crypto device cannot be hacked since it is an offline device.

If you are wondering which 2FA to use:

Email - potentially your email could get hacked. This would give access to your account if your password is also compromised.
Google Authenticator - Probably the second most secure option from this list. It may be possible for the google authenticator to become compromised
or access gained if you loose your phone.
Pin number - keystroke logger may compromise this option.
Password - keystroke logger may compromise this option.
Security Questions - Good questions that only you know th answer to would probably be the third most secure option. keystroke logger may compromise this option.
Cryptopia device - The most secure option. This is an offline device so does not have the risks associated with some of the other options.

Use a unique long password (e.g. five or six random words with number, capital and symbols).
Do not use the password on any other website.

Any 2FA option is better than no 2FA enabled. Best 2FA option is a Crytopia device.
