        Article summary

        It is possible to get access to the Buckaroo Payment Plaza by means of two-factor authentication. Thus the user can rest assured not just anyone can log in to the Buckaroo Plaza by simply typing in the username and password. Apart from the current login data, we recommend you also set an extra verification via your phone with the Google Authenticator. This can be downloaded in the online App store of the relevant phone type. With two-factor authentication, two of the following forms of authentication must be complied with:

        • Something the user knows (knowledge about the login)
        • Something the user possesses (phone with authentication app)
        • Something the user is (personal characteristic, such as iris recognition or fingerprint)

        Authentication steps

        • Log in to the Buckaroo Payment Plaza
        • Press the arrow button behind the login name in the upper right corner
        • Select Settings
        • Select Set up two-factor authentication (see image)
        • Scan the QR code that becomes visible
        • From now on, you can log in to the Buckaroo Plaza with an automatically generated code
