Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA or two-step verification) is an extra layer of security we offer for your Axos Invest account.
2FA is a free opt-in feature that clients can add. When 2FA is enabled for your account, you will be prompted to enter an authentication code anytime you request to make an update or access your personal information. Your code will be sent to your specified mobile device. 2FA helps us confirm you are authorized to make the requested changes to the account.
If you already have two-factor authentication turned on, kudos for taking this highly recommended security step! If you haven’t yet, you can enable it in the Security section on the dashboard here.
Lastly please, please, please don’t use the same password for your Axos Invest account as you do for other online services (easier said than done, we know).
