Two-factor authentication is the considered a gold standard of security for many reasons. Even if someone were to guess your password or it got leaked as part of a hack, no one can log in to your account without physical access to your device. In the case of Reddit, for users who choose 2FA security, they can access a 6-digit verification code generated on their smartphone after a new sign-in attempt.


In order to enable two-factor authentication, log in to your Reddit account and tap on Preferences in the top menu. Now, select Password/email tab. Further, select the option to enable two-factor authentication, then follow the instructions to complete the process.
