How to set up a T-OTP (Time-based OTP) as your 2FA to further secure your Espresso Login

By setting up a T-OTP on your Espresso Login, you will be using an advanced security measure that will make it next to impossible for fraudsters to enter your Espresso account. A T-OTP is the second factor of your Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) to log in to your Espresso account and place trades/orders. The Password you have been using until now will continue to be in use.

In this step-by-step walkthrough of setting up a T-OTP, we will be using the Google Authenticator app, so please have it installed on your mobile device. You can use any other widely known authenticator app of your convenience too. Let’s get into it:

Step 1

Log in to your Espresso account on the website www.myespresso.com. Click on the hamburger menu on the top-right of your screen. Then click Enable / Disable 2FA TOTP, as seen here:

Step 2

The following window will open up. You can go through the informative points. As mentioned earlier, do have the Google Authenticator app installed on your mobile device. Click ENABLE 2FA TOTP.

Download Google Authenticator

Install for Android | Install for iOS

Download Microsoft Authenticator

Step 3

The following window will now show up. The instructions in the bullets have to be followed. Essentially, you need to use the Google Authenticator app to scan the QR Code you see on the window. The app will then display a 6-digit T-OTP. Enter the 6-digit T-OTP in the space provided and click ENABLE:

SS3

Once you click ENABLE, the system will prompt you to enter an OTP (One-Time Password) to authenticate T-OTP enablement in your account. Enter the OTP and you’re done!

Important Note

Once the T-OTP is set up, you have to use the same mobile authenticator app to generate a new 6-digit T-OTP every time you log in.

Thank you for adding an additional security layer to your data and account. Happy Trading!
