This additional protection measure helps to keep the information in your account safe against phishing attacks, or in other instances where an unauthorised individual might guess or gain access to your password. For these reasons, Donr highly recommends enabling 2-Step Verification on your account.

To verify that it’s really you trying to access your account, our 2-Step Verification process will see you use your mobile phone as a secondary log in method.

Firstly, log into your Donr Account. Once you’re in the dashboard click your name on the top right corner and a drop-down menu will appear. Click ‘2-Step Verification’ and follow the instructions.
