While 3Commas doesn’t store your money and does not have the ability to withdraw or transfer funds from your exchange account, we highly recommend you to go through this crypto-security checklist to feel confident about the security of your funds.

When working with an exchange:

  1. Secure your exchange account with two-factor authentication (2FA).

  2. Save 2FA backup keys in a safe place.

  3. Use a strong and unique password/email for your exchange account.

  4. When creating API keys don’t store secure API keys in a shared or accessible document.

  5. Don’t send your API keys via a message to yourself or anyone.

  6. Use separate API keys for different services.

  7. When opening emails from an exchange be wary of phishing emails and ensure the authenticity of the sender.

When working with mobile devices:

  1. Secure your smartphone with a PIN code.

  2. Never give your device to anyone while the trading app is opened or with your Google Authenticator is accessible.

  3. Always ensure that your backup codes are retrievable in the event your phone is lost or stolen.

When creating account on 3Commas:

  1. If you have created your 3Commas account with Facebook or Apple ID, be sure to enable 2FA on said services. Follow the instructions for Facebook and for Apple.

  2. If you have created your 3Commas account with an email address and password:

    1. Use email address you are checking regularly (not a “spam-address”)

    2. Use a strong and unique password different from your email address.

    3. Verify your email address (you will receive a link once you are registered).

    4. Enable 2FA for your account in Settings.

When using 3Commas:

  1. Hide your balance when you are sharing screenshots or your interface is viewable by others.

  2. Logout from 3Commas if you are giving access to your device to someone.

  3. Secure your device with password or PIN and don’t leave it unlocked.

  4. Don’t share your email_token in TradingView commands.

Following security measures is vital in cryptocurrency trading. Always remember that $100 worth of a token may become a fortune someday. So treat every penny with respect.
