  4. Scan the QR code with your authenticator app. For example, Authy or 1Password.
    • If you're unable to scan the QR code, you can type in the secret key manually, located below the QR code.
  5. Type in the code generated by your authenticator app.
  6. Type in your Parsec account password.
  7. Provide a recovery email, in case you need to reset your TFA.
  8. Click 'Enable 2FA'

  9. Click 'Download Codes'
    • These backup codes are extremely sensitive and important. They can be used in place of the TOTP codes generated by your authenticator app, for example if you lose access to your authenticator app or codes. Store your backup codes in a secure location.
