Here's How To Set Up 2-Factor Verification On Nintendo Switch

It's a good time to secure your Nintendo Switch online account. Not just because anytime is a good time to beef up your online security, but because Nintendo recommends taking a few extra security steps given recent reports of account breaches. One common security measure Nintendo recommends is to set up 2-factor verification, but how?

With 2-factor verification enabled, you'll need both your password and a unique code sent to your mobile device at the time of login. This way, even if your account password is compromised, a potential bad actor wouldn't be able to obtain your unique code--and you'll get an alert on your phone when someone tries. Fortunately, the process of signing up for two-step verification is simple.

First, sign in to your Nintendo account from a web browser, and then select "Sign-in and security settings." Edit the Two-Step Verification settings and click the option to enable it, then submit. A confirmation will be sent to your email, and then you'll just follow the on-screen prompts to scan a QR Code using the free Google Authenticator app. You'll be given a one-time verification code to enable it, as well as a list of backup codes in case you ever need to access it without the Authenticator app. Be sure to copy those codes down and put them somewhere safe.
