Security is a top priority at BitMake. While we do everything to keep your account secure, you also have the power to greatly increase the security of your BitMake account.
1. Use a strong password and change it regularly
This is an essential step for securing your BitMake account. Ideally, these passwords should be more than eight characters long, containing both uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters.
One of the best ways to generate, manage, and store secure passwords are password managers. This way, you can hold and manage your different passwords in a secure and convenient way, all in the same place. Most password managers will employ sophisticated encryption mechanisms to provide an additional layer of protection. Be sure to only use trusted password manager software, and of course, create a strong master password.
It is also a good habit to change your password regularly, as attackers may have ways to obtain your passwords regardless. This is not only true for your BitMake account, but also your email associated with your BitMake account.
It’s beneficial to use different email addresses for different accounts. However, if you’re using dedicated email addresses for each service, there’s a smaller chance that a breach will affect multiple of your accounts.
Please note that once you change the password of your BitMake account, you won’t be able to withdraw funds in the following 24 hours. This is to prevent potential attackers from locking you out of your account while withdrawing your funds.
2. Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
Activating Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) should be among the first things you do after creating a BitMake account，that is, to bind Google Authenticator.
Just make sure to write down your reset key in case you need to transfer your 2FA codes to a new mobile phone.
3. Check the list of devices authorized to access your account
You can check the devices that are authorized to access your BitMake account in the Device Management tab. When using the BitMake app, you can find this at 【Security Center】-【Device management】.
If you see any devices you don’t recognize or don’t use anymore, remove them. Once you remove a device, it won’t be able to access your account again.
You can also check account activity, that is, what IP address was your account accessed from and when. If you see anything suspicious, immediately disable your account. This will suspend trading and withdrawals, remove all devices that can access your account.You can also contact BitMake Customer Service, which will assist you in temporarily freezing your account.
4. Manage your withdrawal addresses
Your BitMake account has a security feature called Address Management. It allows you to limit the wallet addresses that you can withdraw funds to.
5.Learn about phishing
Phishing is a type of attack where a malicious actor tries to pose as someone else (for example, a business) to obtain your personal information. It’s one of the most common attacks out there, and you should be wary of it.
As a general rule of thumb, it’s best to only visit BitMake from a saved bookmark instead of typing the address each time. If you haven’t already, feel free to bookmark the link right now: https://www.Bitmake.com/.
With this simple step, you can already avoid a good chunk of the fake BitMake websites that aim to trick you into getting access to your account information.
The Anti-Phishing Code feature allows you to set a unique code to be included in all your BitMake notification emails. By enabling the Anti-Phishing code, you’ll be able to tell if the notification emails you’re receiving from BitMake are genuine. If you’d like to learn more about how to use it, check out our Anti-Phishing Code.
6.Set the password for funds
BitMake supports setting up a funding password. After setting up a funding password, you must enter the funding password to withdraw coins.
7. Use a separate email
It is best to register for Bitmake with a separate and confidential mailbox, so that even if the mailbox is stolen or lost, there is no risk of your account number and assets being lost.
