Not that anyone on Reddit uses their real name or gives up any personal info but-just in case-the site just launched two-factor authentication to protect you from doxxers. This feature was previously in beta, but has now been rolled out to all Reddit users.
To access the new 2FA system for yourself, simply visit your account's password/email preferences tab on Reddit's desktop website and enable it.
To enable it, click on the click to enable link indicated by the red arrow above and Reddit will display an alert asking you to confirm that your email is correct. Given the vulnerabilities modern servers have, it has become indispensable to add two-factor authentication. Reddit's 2FA provides a second layer of security for online accounts by prompting you to enter one-time codes generated by your phone after entering your password for additional authentication.
Two-factor authentication is supported across desktop, mobile, and third-party applications, and requires an authenticator app such as Google Authenticator or Authy to work.
