2FA becomes more convenient with the EXMO mobile app

We have added a new, more convenient two-factor authentication (2FA) method. Now you can receive a verification code as a push notification from the EXMO mobile app.

Our team is constantly working on improving the EXMO platform to make it even more convenient and secure. Two-factor authentication (2FA) has long been introduced on EXMO and has actually become a standard and mandatory security measure for most financial services.

While signing in on EXMO, after entering the email and password, the system requests a 2FA code to log in. A 2FA code is also requested when you withdraw funds. Thanks to 2FA, a hacker will be unable to gain access to your funds, even if they are able to get hold of your login and password.

EXMO used to have two 2FA methods: via SMS code and the Google Authenticator app. We are pleased to announce that now you can receive verification codes even faster and more conveniently through push notifications in the EXMO mobile app.

How 2FA works in the EXMO mobile app

By choosing the mobile app as the main 2FA method, you will receive a verification code as a push notification, without having to wait to receive an SMS or wasting time using Google Authenticator.

In addition, you will be able to track all account login activities in the “Notifications” tab. You can access it from the main screen by tapping on the icon in the upper right corner.


How to set up 2FA via push notifications

Setting up the 2FA push notifications method only takes a few minutes.

  • First, make sure you have the EXMO mobile app installed. If you haven’t installed it yet, now is the time to download it.

  • To set up or change the 2FA method, you need to sign in to the web version of EXMO, then go to the “Settings” page and select “Two-factor authentication (2FA)”. Choose push notifications as your primary security method and save the setting.
  • Check if you have enabled push notifications in your EXMO app settings.

Our team will continue to improve the functionality of EXMO to make trading even more convenient.
