Security tips

One of the main principles of Free2ex is the reliability and security of our clients’ accounts.

In today’s interconnected world, information security can no longer be the sole responsibility of information security professionals – it must become a shared responsibility that requires efforts at all levels, and more generally, the entire society.

Free2ex team recommends that our clients adhere to certain account security rules:

  • Use a strong password for your account (at least 11 characters consisting of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and signs), and change it at least once a year to ensure the security of your personal information. Don't use the same passwords for different sites. You can use the password generator function, which is available during registration and in the settings of your Personal Cabinet. 
  • Activate two-factor authentication in your Personal Cabinet settings and use dynamic codes in addition to your password to log in to your account, as well as to perform certain transactions.
  • Regularly update your operating system, browser, and other programs with security updates and patches to minimize the threat from viruses and malicious software.
  • Limit your actions in public Wi-Fi and use software that creates a secure Internet connection, such as VPN, to establish a secure connection regardless of your location.
  • Do not download pirated software, not only because it is illegal, but also because it can often contain various types of malicious software.
  • Do not disclose passwords or other login information to third parties.
  • Always check the URL you are visiting. Phishing websites imitate domains or websites in order to make you disclose your personal data. Make sure you visit real websites.
  • Do not believe scammers who promise you prizes and gifts. Be wary of emails from strangers, especially if their offers seem too tempting. Never click on suspicious links or enter personal data on suspicious websites.
  • Always check your files before downloading.Some hackers can infect your device through documents attached to emails, including PDF files. Open attachments after an antivirus scan, either via Chrome or Google Drive: this will reduce the risk of infection. If threats are detected when scanning the file, you will see a warning.
