How to Keep Your Walmartone Account Secure with Two-Factor Authentication
Walmartone has an excellent security system, but you should never be complacent about your personal information being compromised. Two-factor authentication, or 2FA as it’s commonly referred to, is one of the best ways to keep your account safe from hackers and other bad actors out there. Here are the details of how you can set up Walmartone 2FA on your account, and why you’ll want to do so as soon as possible!
What Is Two-Factor Authentication?
Walmartone 2-Step Verification is a way for you to protect your account and stay safe online. We have been working on making our website more secure by adding new security features like two-factor authentication.
Two-factor authentication works by sending a second password (or code) in addition to your regular password when you log into your account from a new device or browser.
This helps make sure that anyone who gets access to your password can’t get into your account without also having access to the second code, which you generate with an app on your phone or another trusted device.
With two-factor authentication, you can rest easy knowing that your account will be secure in case of unauthorized access. If you haven’t set up two-factor authentication for your Walmartone account yet, take a few minutes today to go through our easy two-step verification process.
You’ll receive an email or text message any time someone attempts to log into your account from a new device or browser; just click on one of those messages and enter a unique 6-digit code we send you via SMS or app every time you try to login.
This means that even if someone else has gotten hold of your password, they won’t be able to access your Walmartone account because they don’t have your secondary code.
Why You Should Use it?
Walmartone offers a variety of features designed to keep your account secure. One feature is Two-Factor Authentication, which requires you type in a code that is sent by SMS text message or generated by the Google Authenticator app. It can be enabled as a one-time setup or on every login with your username and password.
When you enable two-factor authentication for the first time, you’ll need to create a backup phone number for when the verification code doesn’t work on its first try, then click Next to continue.
You can login or sign up for a new account here, but you’ll need your own Walmartone username and password. After you’re logged in, you can navigate to My Account > Manage Settings > Security at any time. Scroll down until you see two factor authentication and click Turn On.
When you turn on two-factor authentication, an SMS text message is sent to your backup phone number with a link that allows you turn on two factor authentication without changing your primary phone number. If it doesn’t work right away, try again in a few minutes and enter both codes when prompted. You’ll only need one of them – don’t type both in!
Setting Up Two-Factor Authentication On your Walmart One Account
Setting up two-factor authentication on your Walmartone account is a simple process that will provide protection for your account. You’ll need a phone with the latest version of the app, plus be enrolled in SMS text alerts. Once you’ve done this, enable two-factor authentication. The next step is to log into your account and visit Settings > Security > Secure Account with Two-Factor Authentication and toggle the button to On.
We recommend choosing the Authenticator App option since it’s more secure than SMS text alerts. The application generates six-digit codes on your phone so you can securely sign in without having to enter anything on the website or app.
What Happens If I Lose My Phone?
If you lose your phone, the text message with a code will no longer be delivered to your phone. To stay secure, we recommend you set up an account on a trusted device.
If you have an account on more than one device and they’re both lost or stolen, the safest option is to disable two-step verification for that account. You can do this by going into Account Settings and disabling Two-Factor Authentication.
Once enabled again, you’ll need to verify it with a two-step method of your choice—text message, call or Google Authenticator app (which syncs across all devices).
Can I Use an App Instead of Text Messaging?
Walmartone has a new security feature to help make your account even more secure. This extra layer of protection is called Two-Factor Authentication,
and it requires you to use both your password and an additional piece of information in order to log in. That means if someone gets your password, they still won’t be able to log into your account without the additional information.
To enable two-factor authentication, go into My Account on a computer or the Walmart app on a mobile device and find the Two-Factor Authentication option under Personal Information. After enabling Two-Factor Authentication, you’ll be asked for a phone number that can receive text messages.
