If you need to change your preferred user authentication method (for example, if you want to switch from Google Authenticator, which is your primary and preferred auth method, to SMS/text messages, which is your additional auth method), do the following:

  1. In the X-Payments back end, go to your profile details page and click on the configure link for the user authentication method that you wish to use as your preferred one:
