How to set-up Zerodha time-based one-time password-TOTP for higher security?

Zerodha asks for a mandatory TOTP while buying risky penny/illiquid stocks, where the chance of fraudulent activity is more.

The TOTP activation adds an extra layer of security to your login credentials and reduces the chance of stealing login credentials.

To set up the TOTP in your Kite- App, you have to download the Google Authenticator or Authy or Microsoft Authenticator application from the Google play store. Once the app is downloaded, follow the below steps on your device.

  • Go to the kite app. Click on “Profile”, then click the “Manage” button.
  • Click “Enable 2Factor TOTP”.
  • Kindly verify your Email by entering the OTP.
  • A QR code with a key to copy will appear on the screen.
  • You can go to your Google Authenticator and scan the QR code or paste the key there.
  • A six-digit TOTP will appear on the google authenticator screen, which you can enter in your Kite app now along with the kite password.

Now the TOTP will be activated and you can log in using the TOTP that is generated in your Google Authenticator App.
