    Why you should use 2FA for Pixiv?

    Pixiv is a popular platform for artists and art enthusiasts alike. With so much creativity and inspiration flowing through the site, it's important to keep your account secure. That's where 2-factor authentication comes in.
     Enabling 2FA on your Pixiv account adds an extra layer of security to your login process. This means that even if someone manages to get your password, they won't be able to access your account without the second factor, which is usually a code sent to your phone or generated by an app like our Authenticator.
     At our Authenticator, we take security and privacy seriously. We don't store any of your personal information or 2FA codes on our servers. Everything is stored locally on your device, so you can rest assured that your information is safe.
     In addition to enabling 2FA, there are a few other security and privacy tips you should keep in mind when using Pixiv. First, make sure your password is strong and unique. Don't use the same password for multiple accounts, and avoid using easily guessable information like your name or birthdate.
     Second, be cautious when clicking on links or downloading files from unknown sources. Malicious links and files can contain viruses or malware that can compromise your security.
     By following these tips and enabling 2-factor authentication with our Authenticator app, you can enjoy all the creativity and inspiration that Pixiv has to offer with peace of mind knowing that your account is secure.
