The sweeping momentum of cryptocurrencies worldwide attracts not only enthusiasts, traders, and investors but also scammers and hackers. This necessitates the prioritization on protecting security of your BingX account and your cryptocurrency assets.
This article will introduce some practical tips and strategies to enhance the security of your account and ensure a safer cryptocurrency investment experience.
1. Enable Google 2FA Authentication
We highly recommend enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) immediately after creating a BingX account for better security. Please refer to BingX Tutorial | How to Complete 2FA With Google Authenticator to complete the setup.
Also, don't forget to enable 2FA for your email account. For details, please follow the official guides provided by major email service providers such as Gmail, ProtonMail, iCloud, Hotmail, and Outlook.
2. Set Up a Fund Password
To further fortify your account's security, it is strongly advised to set up a separate fund password that differs from your login password. This fund password will be used for all security verifications and withdrawals, providing an extra layer of protection for your funds, even if your login information is compromised.
3. Stay Vigilant Against Phishing and Impersonation Attempts
To ensure the legitimacy of any BingX-related domain or information source (such as emails, phone numbers, URLs, or social media accounts), always rely on BingX's official verification channel.
Never click on any suspicious links or register or download from inaccurate website addresses. Make sure to use the official BingX website (https://bingx.com).
4. Disable Your Account if Suspicious Activities Found
If you suspect unauthorized access or notice any suspicious activity in your account, please suspend your account in the Account & Security page, or by the provided link in the notification email for new withdrawal address or device login.
5. Additional Security Recommendations
a. Use strong passwords to protect your account: Choose a password with at least 8 characters (the more characters, the stronger the password), combining letters, numbers, special characters, and both uppercase and lowercase letters.
b. Secure your email account: Set a unique and robust password for the email address associated with your BingX account. We recommend using a secure and unique password for both your email and BingX account.
c. Keep your account information confidential: Do not share your email address or any personal information related to your account with anyone.
d. Avoid using insecure public Wi-Fi: We recommend using secure wireless connections, such as wired 4G/LTE mobile connections on smartphones or utilizing our official BingX app for trading anytime and anywhere.
e. Remember to log out: Please log out of your account when you are away from your computer for an extended period.
f. Add security measures: Consider adding login passwords, security locks, and facial ID verification to your smartphone, desktop, or laptop for an extra layer of security.
g. Avoid automatic password autofill and saving: Refrain from using the autofill feature or saving passwords in your browser.
h. Keep an eye on social media scams: Exercise caution when using information on social media or chat platforms. Avoid clicking on links, SMSs, or emails from unknown sources to prevent falling victim to social media scams.
