What do you need in order to set up 2-step verification (2SV) on the Scotia iTRADE app?

A mobile phone is required to set up 2-step verification. When you download the new app, you will be prompted to set up 2SV.

2SV offers additional protection to both operating systems. If you are an Android user, you must set up 2SV. iOS users are also encouraged to enable 2SV as it helps safeguard accounts against fraud.

iOS and Android users can manage 2-step verification by using the Scotia iTRADE mobile app:

  1. From the app’s Home screen, tap More
  2. Tap Settings
  3. Tap manage 2-step verification

Depending on the security setup of your device, you may be prompted with a biometric authentication request (for example, face or fingerprint ID) or asked to enter your device passcode.

This is a security requirement to help protect your account.
