With this new security measure, when you log in, Nintendo will ask you for your password and you will also have to enter a confirmation code.

This code can only be used once and to obtain them you will have to download an authentication app on your mobile phone. Generally, users prefer to download Google Authenticator , as it is available for free on the Google Play Store.
