Reddit is now offering the option of using two-factor authentication (2FA) to all users following successful trials with moderators and beta-testers …
You asked for it, and we’re delivering! Today, all Reddit users have the option to enable two-factor authentication for an additional layer of account security […]
Two-factor adds more security to your Reddit account by requiring a second step to sign in. In this case, if you opt into 2FA, you’ll access a 6-digit verification code generated by your phone after a new sign-in attempt.
You need to enable 2FA on desktop, but it then works across desktop, mobile and third-party apps.
You can enable two-factor by selecting the password/email tab under your preferences on desktop. Select Enable under two-factor authentication and follow the steps given to you.
You’ll need an authenticator app which supports the TOTP protocol. Popular choices are Google Authenticator and Authy.
