On November 2nd, Shopify Payments will require all shop owners to activate two-step authentication for Shopify Payments. This is to increase account security and prevent fraudsters from taking over the account (which, in the worst case, can lead to stolen payouts).
If you haven't already enabled two-step authentication, you'll see a yellow banner on your admin home page prompting you to complete the setup. You will also receive an email about the two-step authentication.

Data shows that enabling two-step authentication can prevent 99.9% of account breaches, as most security breaches are caused by lost or stolen account information. This added layer of security reduces the likelihood that a compromised account will result in withdrawals being diverted to fraudulent bank accounts.

You can also use the haveibeenpwned.com website to find out if your email address or phone number has been detected in a data breach.
