At Crypto.com, we put security first, always. Security and data privacy assessments are built into our processes, so you can rest assured that your funds are safe with us.
That said, you also have an important role to play when it comes to securing your account, which is why we put together a helpful list of best practices for you to apply when accessing Crypto.com from your device.
Keep your Crypto.com account and funds safe
Avoid using public WiFi networks and poorly-secured connections. These networks can be used to steal login credentials, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information when you’re connected.
Always use your own device when accessing any of your accounts. Shared devices can be set up to access personal data, like tracking and collecting passwords from users.
Cryptography protects us from unwanted hacking and data breaches. Always double check your deposit/withdrawal details. Avoid typing the transaction details manually.
Access to your Exchange account API Key allows other people to move funds and assets on your behalf. With API access permission, third-party apps or services can execute trades, diversify funds, and collect account data. Be sure to verify who has access to your Exchange account API Key (if you use it). Once you stopped using a service provider, remove their access.
Keep your devices safe
Remember to activate Anti-Phishing Codes for your App and Exchange accounts. This protects you from phishing attacks that look like emails from Crypto.com. Also, remember to log off online sessions and clear the browser cache after that.
Install antivirus software on every device you use. Windows comes standard with Windows Defender, which provides a layer of protection. Macbooks generally offer good protection against viruses by default, but it’s always a good idea to avoid suspicious-looking websites and emails. You should always hover over a link to double-check where it is actually taking you.
Keep your system and apps updated to the most recent version. Always install updates when they become available. You can also check if your Crypto.com App is the latest version by going to the App Store or Google Play. It’s important to update to the latest version because it may contain important security features.
Remove file and printer sharing for your computer, especially when it is connected to the internet. File or printer sharing can give malicious third parties access to sensitive information.
Set a schedule for backing up your critical data. You can use Google Drive or other popular cloud storage solutions to back up your important files.
Use Multi-Factor Authentication. Using MFA, such as Google Authenticator or Okta, adds an extra layer of security to your account.
