The world of crypto is pretty young but it's growing so fast that it has become very appealing to all sorts of fraudsters and sharks, and their strategies are getting more sophisticated by the day. Social engineering is a tremendous and very real online threat. 


HitBTC is fully invested in your security, so we created a whole set of tools to help you safeguard your account. Email confirmations for major account activities, 2-factor authentication, and withdrawal whitelists – all of these procedures make it much harder for criminals to steal your funds.


But technical solutions aimed at ensuring your security may not always be sufficient for your full protection. They are not always effective in preventing social engineering. Beware that there are thousands, if not tens of thousands of scammers out there who dedicate their every waking hour to trying to steal money from insufficiently vigilant traders. Some of their traps have been around since the dawn of the internet, and why change them if hordes of naïve users still fall for them? So we put together a list of some of the security tools available on HitBTC to ensure the safety of your trading. Please make certain to enable the tools and follow our recommendations.
