Setting up account security

In order to strengthen the protection of your account from hacking, and to be able to create an API key for your trading account, you need to configure your account security.

Enable two-factor authentication

To connect the TSLab trading platform to your KuCoin account, you need to create an API key. This key will be available only after enabling two-factor authentication for your account.

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a method of identifying a user in a service (usually on the Internet) by requesting two different types of authentication data, which provides a two-layer, and therefore more effective account protection from unauthorized entry.

Open the Account menu -> Account Security

On the Security Settings page, find the Google Verification menu item. Click on the Bind button.

In the window that opens, request a verification code by email. Enter the code and on the next page, scan the QR code using your two-factor authentication app of choice. Enter the code from the application.

Next, to create an API key, you need to set a Trading Password. On the Security Settings page, find the Trade Password item. Click on the Settings button.

In the window that opens, enter the six-digit code from the two-factor authentication application. This six-digit code is updated on average 30 seconds.

Create and enter a new Trading Password.

After 2FA is enabled and the Trading Password is set, you can proceed to creating an API key.
