ALL ABOUT SECURITY AND PRIVACY
ALL ABOUT DATA PRIVACY
Below are some tips to help you better understand the risks and learn about how you can improve your own personal security and privacy.
At Cryptex.to we are committed to Security. We’re constantly investing heavily in our people, technology, and processes to maintain the highest standards.
-The device unlock sequence/passcode is the same as Cryptex.to
-Cryptex.to accounts shared the same password as the registered email account.
-The same email address is used for various crypto wallets, services and exchanges.
When it comes to your privacy and security, there’s not much room left for convenience. These are the priority aspects for which it is worth making compromises.
-Always set a unique passcode and/or pattern lock for your phone and Cryptex DeFi Wallet. This will help protect your data and funds in case you lose your device.
-Use a unique email address to register an account works best when paired with anti-phishing code.
-Use strong and unique passwords (consider installing password management software)
With a password manager, you can free your mind from having to remember multiple password combinations. Just make sure your master password is strong yet easy for you to remember, like phrases that are only meaningful to you.
-Never publish or share the your password. Avoid sharing your password with others at social gatherings.
-Do not share credentials to your account(s) like MFA, PIN or password with anyone.
No one from Cryptex will ever ask for your login credentials, private keys, MFA security codes or recovery phrases, no matter which mode of communication you use to communicate with us.
-Do not store your MFA recovery code and Cryptex DeFi Wallet password on the same device you use to access our products.
Multi-medium backup is a standard that will help you to conveniently recover access to your account in case of loss of device with your Multi-factor Authentication.
-Do not store passwords and logins in an unencrypted form.
Don’t sacrifice security for momentary convenience. One cannot predict the exact timing for accidental device loss or an unauthorised, 3rd party access attempt. You must always be prepared and protected.
-Avoid using public WiFi networks and poorly-secured connections. These networks can be used to steal login credentials, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information when you’re connected.
-Always use your own device when accessing any of your accounts. Shared devices can be set up to access personal data, like tracking and collecting passwords from users.
-Cryptography protects us from unwanted hacking and data breaches. Always double check your deposit/withdrawal details. Avoid typing the transaction details manually.
-Access to your Exchange account API Key allows other people to move funds and assets on your behalf. With API access permission, third-party apps or services can execute trades, diversify funds, and collect account data. Be sure to verify who has access to your Exchange account API Key (if you use it). Once you stopped using a service provider, remove their access.
-Remember to activate Anti-Phishing Codes for your App and Exchange accounts. This protects you from phishing attacks that look like emails from Cryptex.to. Also, remember to log off online sessions and clear the browser cache after that.
-Install antivirus software on every device you use. Windows comes standard with Windows Defender, which provides a layer of protection. Macbooks generally offer good protection against viruses by default, but it’s always a good idea to avoid suspicious-looking websites and emails. You should always hover over a link to double-check where it is actually taking you.
-Keep your system and apps updated to the most recent version. Always install updates when they become available.
-Remove file and printer sharing for your computer, especially when it is connected to the internet. File or printer sharing can give malicious third parties access to sensitive information.
-Set a schedule for backing up your critical data. You can use Google Drive or other popular cloud storage solutions to back up your important files.
