Have a Bybit account already? Keeping your account safe is a top priority.

How to Protect Your Account

Bybit takes a lot of steps to ensure the security of your account. We also recommend that you use more ways to better protect your account. Here are two (2) simple tips for you.

Tip 1: Create a Strong Password

A strong password is one of the best ways to keep your account safe and protect personal information from hacker attacks.

The more unique passwords you use, the more secure your assets. Ideally, a strong password will include various characters, both upper and lowercase letters, and numbers and symbols. In addition, avoid the use of easily guessable information such as birth dates, addresses and phone numbers.

Tip 2: Turn On 2FA

Before proceeding, please make sure you have downloaded the Google Authenticator app here: Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

Set Up via Web

Click “Account & Security” in the upper right corner of the page to enter the account and security page.
