The goal is to ensure that Sumotrust customers invest and save without fear or doubt, knowing well that their accounts are secured and funds protected.
What Is 2FA (Two-Factor Authentication)?
Google authenticator is a security software app by Google that can protect your sumotrust account against password theft. Google Authenticator generates two-factor authentication which provides an additional layer of stronger security for your Sumotrust account by requiring a second authentication step; a password and a verification code or key when you sign in.
These authentication steps help make sure that only you and nobody else has access to your account, thereby protecting your account from fraudulent activities.
