- Under “User Settings” click on “My Account” if it doesn’t open by default when you click on the Settings and choose “Enable Two-Factor Auth” from the right panel.
- Now set up Google Authenticator or Authy on your device and in either of the app “Scan a Barcode” feature to scan the QR code in Discord. How to Scan and Read QR codes on iPhone/iPad
