PIN: Explanation

A PIN is a four to six digit number that can be generated by our system or set up by yourself (available on the website only), in addition to your password. Once a PIN is set for your account, you will be required to enter your PIN on an on-screen keypad, every time you log in.

Each time you try to log into your account, the numbers will change position. That will stop most keyloggers from recording what buttons you select and help to protect the security of your account.

The use of the PIN also enhances your account security by providing an additional validation number, which would prevent you from being exposed to certain types of "phishing" and "social engineering" scams.

You can enable the PIN by logging into your account and selecting the options listed below, depending on the platform you're using.
