Now, open the Google Authenticator app on your phone and select Scan a QR code.
After that, scan the given QR code with the Authenticator app and enter the security code text box provided, click on the Verify and Save button for verification.
Google Authenticator has been set as your 2-factor authentication method.
After that click on the Test it! button.

Enter the verification code from the configured account in your Google Authenticator app.
Then click on the Submit button.

Enter your login credential and click on the Log In button.
For any new login, you need to enter the security code shown in the authenticator app and click on the Validate button to log in to the site.
