Security is of utmost importance at Ausfinex. Our dedicated team has invested plenty of resources and hours to ensure top-notch security. We are constantly trying to ensure the Ausfinex platform is free from unwanted entities, including AI and data analysis to help prevent attacks. However, spreading a few Ausfinex account managing tips within the community can be of great help.
Every Ausfinex account holder has the power to maintain accounts safe and keep bad actors at bay. As part of our professional commitment, Ausfinex is trying all possible means to bring you a safe and secure crypto trading environment.
These are a few tips that you should always remember:
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
Activating 2FA on your Ausfinex account is the most important process toward crypto fund security. Ausfinex recommends you use Google Authenticator every time you log-in.
It is highly recommended that you use a strong password that is at least 8 characters long. The password should be a combination of uppercase, lowercase, one special character, and numbers. It is a good practice to periodically change your password.
Keeping a list of devices for Ausfinex access
Always keep a list of devices that are authorized to access the Ausfinex account. If any device is no longer used or you see any unrecognizable devices, remove access.
Complete Enhanced Verification
Ausfinex urges all users to complete Enhanced Verification, which protects scammers or attackers from taking ownership of your account.
Set up IP and Wallet Whitelist
Set up an IP and wallet whitelist to secure your account from unauthorised access. Allow withdrawals to addresses that you trust and keep checking the wallet whitelist periodically. By enabling the "Whitelist" options on Ausfinex, you can protect your account and funds from unwanted access.
Manage funds in own wallet
Though the Ausfinex exchange is highly secure, it is often argued that funds are most secure in your custody. Use a reliable and popular private cold storage device or crypto wallet to store your digital currencies and tokens.
Use a secure Internet connection
Check the security features of the Internet service provider and how your system is connected to it. Never use shared connections or public Wi-Fi networks as this could expose your device to attacks.
Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) Authenticator
Try using Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) Authenticator, similar to 2FA but here you don't have to manually enter the code.
Secure Password Manager
Secure passwords are tough to remember, therefore Password managers can be handy. These tools keep track of all account passwords and store them securely.
Always make sure you have an antivirus installed in your system. It lets you know if all apps or files in your system are compromised or not. Ensure you have the latest version of antivirus and keep scanning all files regularly.
Keep Your Phone Locked
Your phone is vital, all sensitive information such as 2FA is accessed through it. Never hesitate to keep your phone protected: try using a fingerprint, face ID, or strong password. An additional layer of security will always help you.
Avoid Phishing Attempts
Always be careful with the emails you receive and the sites you visit. Most successful phishing attempts are from fake sites. Therefore, make it a habit to double-check the website address for accuracy. Do not click on a link from an unknown source.
Use a Unique Email
Ausfinex recommends you use unique emails if possible, for each account. Many people use two or three emails, which leads to information being shared in different portals or services. Using unique emails for the Ausfinex account will prevent unwanted sharing of information and thereby keep your account safe.
Beware of scammers
Never send tokens and coins to any person you don’t know or trust 100%. Never pay heed to advertisements or promotional messages with high returns, these are scams or traps to steal your information or funds. Why would you give a stranger cash? Keep it that simple and never reveal any details in public.
Never give any known or unknown person remote access to any smart device under any situation. Several remote access software and apps are used frequently; installing them on your device will only increase the risk
These are some of the basic ways of keeping your Ausfinex account safe and secure. As a popular name in the business, Ausfinex has partnered with different compliance and cyber-security firms to ensure safe crypto trading. With us you're safe, but it is always good to be extra careful with your hard-earned money.
