How i do it
You can go directly to the security settings of your EA account, or you can create an account if you don’t already have one and then go to the settings. There you will see in the tab Safety an option for Enable Login Verification.
You just have to click on that button and request the verification code in your email. After that part you can choose from several two-step verification methods: it can be your secondary email, an SMS or an application.
Select the one you prefer and then you must confirm it with the code that EA sends you. This is nothing different from how Steam always asks you for a verification code, in addition to your password, every time you log in to an unknown device.
If you wanted to try Origin Access, this is an excellent opportunity to do so for the fabulous price of free, and if you were already a member, you will have a free month for doing yourself a favor to improve the security of your account.
If you already had it active before this announcement, they will also give you your month for free.
