At Bitso, safeguarding your account and assets is our top priority. While we continually improve our monitoring and protection systems to ensure your security, there are crucial steps you can take to enhance it. 

Here are 7 essential practices to follow to keep your account even more secure: 

1 – Choose a Strong Password

Your password is your first line of defense. It’s crucial to choose a complex password to protect your account. In order to do so, opt for a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and special characters. Don’t use the same password twice. Unique, hard-to-guess passwords for each account significantly reduce the risk of unauthorized access from potential attackers.

2 – Beware of Suspicious Links

Do not click or tap on unknown, suspicious or unsolicited links. It’s not uncommon to receive unsolicited emails, text messages, or communication via social networks that include links. These links can often lead to phishing sites designed to steal your personal information or install malware on your device. Always verify the authenticity of the sender and if in doubt, go directly to the official website by carefully typing the URL yourself in the address bar on your web browser. This simple precaution can significantly reduce the risk of compromising your account security.

3 – Don’t Share Passwords or Personal Data

Never share your passwords or other personal information through unsecured emails, unsolicited messages, phone calls or any other means. Scammers often impersonate legitimate sources to steal this information. Always communicate through official channels and verify the identity of the person or service before sharing any sensitive data.

4 – Be Wary of Short-Term Lucrative Offers

Be cautious of offers that promise quick profits or easy wins. Such schemes are often designed to lure unsuspecting users into scams or making risky decisions. This includes crypto investment offers, too. Be especially skeptical of those requesting sensitive information like passwords or private keys. Always research and verify the legitimacy of any investment opportunity before proceeding. Legitimate investments typically do not guarantee immediate high returns.

5 – Verify Urgent Requests

If you receive urgent requests for personal or financial information, stay calm and scrutinize the situation. Verify the authenticity of the request by directly contacting the institution or individual claiming to need the information, using known and trusted contact details. 

6 – Corroborate Online Identities

Always check the authenticity of online identities. Exercise caution when interacting with online profiles on social networks, online marketplaces, etc. Trust your instincts—if something feels off, it probably is.

7 – Keep Up to Date

Stay informed about the latest trends and threats in the crypto universe by engaging in online forums, following trusted experts, and consuming educational content. Staying updated is one of the best defenses against emerging security threats.

By following these best practices and leveraging our advanced security measures, you can ensure the safety of your Bitso account. Stay vigilant and informed so you can focus on what truly matters: building and managing your wealth.
