How do I set up 2-step verification?
You can register for 2-step verification by using the Scotiabank mobile banking app:
- From the app’s Home screen, tap More
- Tap Privacy and security
- Tap Set up 2SV
Depending on the security setup of your device, you may be prompted with a biometric authentication request or asked to enter your device passcode. This is a security requirement to help protect your account.
If you’ve previously set up 2SV and need to set it up on a new device, first deactivate 2SV on the original device. When you sign in to your Scotiabank account on the new device, you can set up 2SV using the steps provided.
