1xBet has put customer safety at the forefront of its business by launching a two-factor authentication system to clamp down on unauthorised access to its players’ accounts.
Rather than gaining access through one login and password, customers on 1xBet – winners of the Rising Star in Sports Betting Innovation at December’s SBC Awards – will now be encouraged to generate a single-use code to access the service.
Firstly, the customer must enable two-factor authentication within their account settings, before installing the Google Authenticator app to their phone. The process can then be completed by scanning the QR code, entering the six-digit code and clicking ‘verify’.
A spokesperson for 1xBet commented: “We care about our customers’ safety. We use the most effective ways to provide a high level of personal data protection and we will do our best to ensure that your partnership with 1xBet is nothing but a positive experience.”
With approximately 81 per cent of hacking-related data breaches resulting from weak or stolen passwords (Verizon, 2017), the extra layer of security from 1xBet seeks to guarantee that its customers’ accounts are secure, both before their initial deposits and during all future transactions.
1xBet will be showcasing its two-factor authentication at next month’s ICE London (S3-250) and London Affiliate Conference (LAC) exhibitions.
