G-Guys?

I had activated 2FA on all exchanges and now I formatted my phone. I was using Google Authenticator and thought it was linked to my Google account but turns out it wasn't.

What now?

Harmless_Venom

now you are going to open a ticket on every exchange to reset your 2fa. hf especially when you message cuckcoin I'm not sure if they even have support

You lowered the total supply, thus increasing the value. Your sacrifice did a lot of good. Thank you.

I actually have the coinbase seed, but I need to message Huobi, Mercatox (LOL) and Binance then.

This. Took 1 week for me on Binance and l had to spam their telegram support group everyday until l managed to contact one customer support guy. But he managed to reset my 2FA

It's fine, just get your printed QR codes out of your filing cabinet and scan them. What's that? You're a retard? Oh...

I did this on my Binance account. You have to email them 3 pictures of something with your ID on like a drivers license. A pic of the front, one of the back and one you holding it with a pice of paper with the date and time on it. You will get an email back with a ID number, now you'll have to use the Telegram app on your phone and find Binance support and post you ID number over and over again 1000x times asking for them to reset your shit. Go on r/Binance for more info, lots of people with the same problem.

You store your 2FA information on a networked computer? Want to download my trading bot? It's safe, trust me.

Emberburn

That's why you should be copying the key it tells you to copy before you set up 2FA you faggot.

Next time either do that or use Authy you silly cunt.

Thanks, I just went through the process. I have my coinbase seed, and binance will probably reset it no problem, but half my coins are on huobi and mercatox - which I am unsure will be able to help me. I feel physically sick. I know this such a rookie mistake but I was dead sure the codes were linked to my google account since it was GOOGLE authenticator - like literally everything else they have. And even though Ive been lurking biz like crazy I've never seen anything about 2FA backups.

I think I'm gonna throw up.

Keep a hard copy in a safe deposit box, if you ever go through a fire or flood your keys are safe at the bank.

Well you saved me because I didn't know I was supposed to save that code and thought it was connected to my google account too. Thanks user.

Sir_Gallonhead
Sir_Gallonhead

No problem I guess. I am talking to huobi now btw and they say 2-5 days so hopefully it's all gonna be okay - although I'm sceptical about mercatox

On your google settings page, you can print out a set of 10 2FA keys that will work once, no matter what. Try going there; if you haven't used them before, just create some and you can use them now.

If I have a samsung and I'm going to switch carriers will it affect my 2fa?

Inmate

based god thank you

Methnerd

Wait

So you mean that these 10 keys can be used to unlock a fucked over Binance account? But each code just once? And it works for all exchanges?

Sounds like I should print this page out.

FastChef
FastChef

probably the best idea i've heard so far, might actually do this one

printing QR codes that could be stolen so easy in my home is probably worse than my encrypted disk on my PC

Stark_Naked
Stark_Naked

It works for any login where you have 2FA linked to your account. But just once per code. But that's all you need to login and turn it off, after all.

Yes, print them out and store them securely.

Is 2FA the next XRP?

RavySnake

People losing coins makes me so happy desu

Lord_Tryzalot

I tried one and it didn't work, as they are 8 numbers long while the original 2FA codes are 6. It just shows me an error after entering the 6th number

Playboyize
Playboyize

You were supposed to write down your 2FA code you got when you set it up apparently. I don't know how to get that now that I already set it up so I hope nothing happens to my phone.

That's strange, they were supposed to work. Sorry m8, hope you find another solution then

Isn't there just some code called Secret Seed you write down when you first get google 2FA?

Techpill

Can you explain why you don't have the binance stuff? It warns you to write down the code and to save the QR code image. I did both.

PackManBrainlure
PackManBrainlure

Well I wish you luck. I assume if you already did some identification stuff it wont be hard to get back in, just will take some time. Not a bad lesson, could be worse like losing your wallet key

idontknow

who actually pays attention to that shit? i thought it was just linked to my google account.

Snarelure

Since you don't have the private password they told you to write down you'll have to wait 3 months to get your account reactivated, less time if you gave your personal information (way less). Welcome to the forced hodl.

--UPDATE--

Binance reset my 2FA in minutes. I have now stored the coinbase and binance backup keys on a piece of paper.

Huobi said they would fix it in 2-5 days and their customer support seemed great.

So hopefully that's at least 90% of my portfolio saved. The rest is at mercatox, hopefully I can recover that as well

LESSON LEARNED.

Don't be an idiot like me guys.

And yes I am new

Yeah man, I've been through a house fire before when they start hosing it down all kinds of stuff gets destroyed. Plus a small safe deposit box is like $10 a month, you can toss your ledger in there before you go on vacation and not worry about it.

eGremlin

so what is the solution? how has this not been a bigger problem for anyone who got a new phone? my phone is fine, but what should i do to prepare for it breaking, etc.?

BinaryMan

Write down the backup keys

You find them on the exchange

I'm surprised I haven't seen case before as I have been lurking biz since autumn.

you most likely will have to make a new 2FA code, but its not a big deal.

its much better than potentially losing your phone and not having the keys

linking your authenticator to an online service defeats the entire purpose of an authenticator
