Security is too important when it comes to your money. This guide will walk you through completing your profile and security settings on your Kucoin Exchange Account.

Click on your profile link then click BASIC INFORMATION to setup your profile.

Basically all you need to do here is to set your username and click Save and change your profile Avatar if you wish and click Save also.

SECURING YOUR ACCOUNT ON YOUR KUCOIN EXCHANGE

To ensure your account security, please select {Google Verification + Email Binding + Trading Password} or {Phone Number Binding + Trading Password} combinations as the strategic security mode. This is important to make it impossible for anyone to easily hack your account and steal your coins.

Click Set to setup the Google Verification for your Account using Google Authenticator App.

Click Send to have the verification code sent to your Email. Enter the Code into the box and click Next.

Scan the Google QR Code with your App and safely copy down your Secret Keys to be used to recover your account if you ever lose your Phone. Keep this Key very secret. Google Verification is normally used for the verification in account login, withdrawal, API creation, etc.

Next is to Link your Phone Number to your Account

As usual you need to click Send to have a verification sent to your E-mail and click Next to continue the setup.

Pick your country from the drop down list; enter your phone number and click Send. A verification code will be sent to your phone via SMS. Provide the code and click Activate. Phone verification is usually used for the verification in account login, withdrawal, API creation, etc. and could switch to the Google verification mode freely (vice versa).

Next is to set up your Trading Password. Click Set

Get your verification from the Google Authenticator App your set up earlier and click Next.

On the popup page, click Okay, I understand

Provide a six-digit number you can easily remember but difficult for a hacker to guess and click Confirm. Yourtrading password is usually used for the verification in transaction, withdrawal, API creation, etc. Please ensure to use a strong password and keep safe and secret.

Finally complete your Security setup with Anti-phishing Safety Phrase and Email Safety Phrase:

Provide a secure Phrase known only by you and click Submit.

Email Safety Phrase: Displayed in the login window when logging.
