Account Security

To protect your account from fraudulent activities (hacking, withdrawing funds from a personal account, etc.), we recommend to set SMS authorization when entering your personal account. This service is free.

When SMS authorization is connected, the system will request a password from the SMS message every time the IP address is changed. In this case, when trying to log into your account from the other computer * scammers will not be able to authenticate.

* When authorizing from dynamic IP addresses or via a mobile network, SMS authorization will occur every time you log in to your account.

SMS authorization is connected in two steps:

  1. Linking a phone number to the eTXT account.
  2. SMS authorization connection.

Step 1. Bind the phone number

  1. Go to the "Profile Settings" page in the "Account" main widget, click on the "Account Settings" link or click on a nickname.
  2. Go to the Security tab, in the Phone number linking section, specify its number, then click on the Send SMS Code button you will get a verification code.

Step 2. SMS authorization

After confirming the mobile number on the right side of the Phone number linking section, two settings will be available for selection. To connect SMS-authorization, select "Only when changing IP", to disable it select "Off".

Optional: the security question setting

In the section below, for the added security of your account, set a verification question and enter the answer. It is important to choose a question that you will not forget for sure.

A verification question is necessary in case of suspicious account activity, that we could identify you and distinguish from scammers.

After setting all the preferences, click the "Save" button at the end of the page.

We wish you good luck on eTXT!
