Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) works by adding an additional layer of security to your Rounded account. To gain account access, it requires an additional login credential, beyond just the username and password.

The 2nd login credential can be created using an authenticator app or generating a code via SMS. This article will explain the available options and how to set them up based on what you prefer.

NOTE: The 2FA can only be enabled on the desktop for now.

To enable 2FA in Rounded using an authenticator app

1. Log in to Rounded and navigate to the security section by clicking Settings and then Account and security

2. Under Two-factor authentication, click Use an app

3. Enter your password

4. Click Confirm

5. Using an authenticator app (At Rounded, we use 1Password, but there are many other compatible apps out there.), scan the QR code

6. Once Rounded is added to the authenticator app, it will generate the 6-digit code that is needed to enable 2FA in Rounded

7. ClickEnable MFA

8. You will be given recovery codes that you can, and there are two ways to save it

  • Click Download to save it as a text file

  • Click Copy and paste it on a text file (or to the file format of your choosing) and save it

9. Put a tick beside I've safely stored my recovery codes once the codes are saved

NOTE: You can still see the Recovery codes by clicking View

10. Click Done

To enable 2FA in Rounded via SMS

1. Under Two-factor authentication, click Use SMS

2. Enter your mobile number

3. Click Verify

4. Enter the verification code sent to your phone

5. Click Done


  • The authenticator app and SMS can be enabled at the same time.
