What is 2-step verification?
It is an additional layer of protection that will prevent a malicious person from accessing your account.
The 2-step verification is now available on all devices and on the Wallapop website.
When is 2-step verification applied?
Two-step verification can be applied in several processes within Wallapop such as:
- Two-step verification when logging in
- Two-step verification for adding/modifying your bank details.
- Two-step verification to validate your identity when you are going to receive a payment.
How does 2-step verification work?
- You will see a screen indicating that you must approve the request received in the email you have linked to Wallapop.
- When you receive the verification email, if it was you who made the request you must Approve the verification.
- Once verified you can continue with the process following the instructions of the app.
- Once you click on Log in, a screen will open to verify the login code.
- You will receive an SMS on your phone with the verification code that you must add on the screen.
- Once you have verified the code, click on Send and you will be able to access Wallapop.
