Privacy and Security

How to protect my account / Increase security?

Set a strong password
Use a unique and brute-force protected password. Avoid the use of simple words, dates, names, etc. as your password.  Avoid using similar password more than once. The most secure option is a combination of a randomly generated password and a trusted password manager. It is advisable to change your password every few weeks & keep safe and secure and not disclosed to anyone.  

Enable 2-factor authentication
This is a critical security feature. Even if anyone learns your password, they can't simply access your account. 
Google 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) is an additional security layer to your password. With 2FA enabled on your account, you will have to provide your 2FA code when performing certain actions on the app. The Google 2FA can be enabled in the "Settings" tab. 

Be vigilant and always adhere simple safety precaution.

Your Devices
•    Keep them neat and orderly – be aware of what is installed on your devices. Ideally, have a dedicated computer for trading and do not install any applications that are not relevant to trading.
•    Do your research to consider the operating system you use – although this does not guarantee you 100% safety, some OS significantly reduces the risks.
•    Do not install any plugins as they can easily turn out to be password-collecting malware. Avoid saving your passwords in your browser.
•    Browser extensions from unknown developers can easily turn out to be malware. They could be used to steal your personal data, intercept your payment details or even to sneakily replace your own deposit address on a web page with the hacker’s address.

•    Make sure to maintain the same level of security on your phone, tablet, or any other device which stores your 2FA code and passwords. 
•    Enable fingerprint check (if available) and the remote erase to use if you lose the phone. 
•    Do not share your device with anyone. 
•    Uninstall and wipe out all unused applications 
•    Upgrade your iOS or Android operating system to the latest version 

WiFi
In general, you should store as few trusted Wi-Fi networks in your devices as needed, and disable auto-connect. If you work in a sensitive position and have unique Wi-Fi network names at your office, you could be leaking the details of your employment to interested parties without knowing it. When in doubt, simply disable your Wi-Fi radio when you’re not using it, as this will prevent most Wi-Fi-based attacks.
By taking the steps above, it’s easy to reduce the risk of your Wi-Fi device joining a malicious network automatically, being tracked between locations, or leaking personal information. While these tips aren’t a complete guide to staying safe on Wi-Fi, they will keep you safe from several of the easiest and cheapest attacks hackers employ.

Email
It is strongly recommend that you set up a separate email address for trading. Enable the 2-step authentication, if in case your mailbox is accessed from an unknown device you’ll get notified.

Using your email
•    Never open unexpected attachments, especially if they contain files of unfamiliar or unknown type or documents/files you have not requested.
•    Never click on any unexpected external links sent to you in an email. Or, if you have to, please make sure you know why you are clicking it. One letter can make a huge difference to your security.
•    Whenever your account is accessed from a new IP address, we will promptly notify you via email. We will also send you emails about any activity, such as withdrawals. These notifications will help you detect illegitimate activity as quickly as possible.
