How To Register & Secure Your Bittrex Exchange Account | Two Factor Authentication & Whitelist Setup


Hello my friend, Caleb Wright here from Bitcoin
Lifestyles Club.
And today I’m going to show you how to register
and adequately secure your Bittrex Exchange
Account, before you send any of your cryptocurrency
funds to it.
So starting here at the home page of Bittrex.com,
you will just have to click the ‘sign up’
link on the upper right hand corner of the
page or via this blue button right here underneath
the Bittrex logo.
On this page just fill out the form with your
email and password.
It’s recommended to use a new email address
for your cryptocurrency exchange accounts,
instead of using any of your average use emails.
This will increase your overall account security.
And make sure that you also secure your email
address used for this, with some form of two
factor authentication.
Preferably using an app, like Google Authenticator.
And when you make a password, be sure to make
it long and include numbers, upper and lower
case characters and symbols.
So that it’s impossible to guess.
Once you have filled the forms, just click
the ‘sign up’ button.
The next page that it takes you to will ask
you to check your email inbox in order to
complete registration by clicking the link
within it to confirm your account, and login.
Here is my email.
If you did not receive an email, check your
spam or junk folder, and if it’s not there
you can just click the link back on this page,
to contact Bittrex support.
Now I’ll just click this link to verify my
new account.
And then once you have done that, it will
take you to this page on Bittrex, where it
will say ‘your email confirmation successful’,
then you can click return to login.
Then go ahead and use your newly created login
information, to log in to your Bittrex Exchange
account.
When you first login, it will ask you to accept
the Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy
to start using your Bittrex Exchange account.
Just click the dark blue button that says
‘Accept Terms’ and it will take you directly
to the settings page of your Bittrex account.
From here I’m going to show you how to properly
setup your security settings, so that you
can move forward with confidence that your
account is 100% secure, before sending any
cryptocurrency to it.
Something you will also want to take care
of, as you can see here.
Is filling out your profile information here.
I would recommend using the same address you
actually reside at, as you will also need
to verify your account via KYC documents.
Meaning they will need an ID and a utility
bill to verify your address.
And after you complete this area, you will
also want to complete ‘Identity Verification’
using the link via the settings menu on the
left here.
This is the only way to raise your daily withdrawal
limits to a reasonable amount.
And you will need to have this taken care
of before you start wanting or needing to
withdraw cryptocurrency from your account.
But that’s just for your info, we are going
to be focusing on your account security in
this video.
We will begin by setting up two factor authentication,
to add a layer of protection to your account.
This is not a recommendation.
This is a required step.
Do not even think about skipping past this
step, you absolutely need to setup two factor
authentication to protect your account before
you even think about depositing money to your
Bittrex account.
You may be wondering how 2FA security works.
So basically once you have 2FA setup on your
account, you will also need a six digit pin
code that is randomly generated by a 2FA app
in addition to your password to login every
time.
And so the only way someone could login to
your Bittrex Exchange account, is if they
have access to your password and your unlocked
mobile phone.
And don’t worry, if you ever lose your phone
or delete your app by accident, you can work
with support to get back in, accidents do
happen to the best of us.
I’ve done it before myself, it’s a pain in
the butt, but it’s not the end of the world.
So go ahead and click the two factor authentication
link in the settings navigation menu here
to the left.
When you first open up the page, it should
display that your two factor authentication
is disabled in the status, in the red text
right here.
The first step to setup 2FA is to download
the Google Authenticator.
I will be providing a recommendation for a
much better authentication app in an upcoming
video, and will drop the link to it in the
video description below when it’s finished,
so keep an eye out for it.
Google authenticator will do for now though,
you can download the google authenticator
app for free on your phones respective app
store.
Just search for the Google authenticator logo,
as you see right here.
So now you should take a moment to pause this
video and go download Google authenticator
so you can continue following along, and secure
your Bittrex exchange account.
Once you are setup with Google authenticator,
you can proceed with step 2, by opening up
the app on your phone and clicking the plus
button on the app, to add an account.
And then select, ‘scan barcode’, this will
open up your phone’s camera, so you can then
scan the QR code you see on the screen right
here, in order to finish setting up 2FA on
your Bittrex Exchange account.
Once you scan this QR code, it will make a
new entry in your Google Authenticator app
that will display six random numerical digits,
that change every 30 seconds.
So for step 3 you can copy down your security
key, store this key somewhere safe, preferably
offline on a piece of paper, so no hackers
can find it on any computers.
Because you can use this code just once to
login to your Bittrex Exchange account.
Without the 2FA code from your google authenticator
app.
Say if you lost your phone or accidentally
deleted the app.
This will make your life much easier than
going through the process of unlocking your
Bittrex Exchange Account with Bittrex support.
Which can be a process that can take up to
two to three weeks, due to their security
policies.
Then for step 4, to complete the process of
securing your account with 2FA security, just
enter the six digits that are currently showing
on your google authenticator app in the field
here that says input your six digit authentication
code, and then click the ‘enable 2FA’ button,
here at the bottom.
It will then display that your 2FA status
is ‘Pending’ in this orange text right here,
and all you will have to do is go to your
email address to find the confirmation email
and click the link in it to confirm the setup
of two factor authentication on your Bittrex
account.
Here’s the email.
I can click the link right here to confirm.
Once you click the link in the email sent
to you by Bittrex, it will take you to a page
where you will have to confirm enabling two
factor authentication, using the 6 digit code
from your Google authenticator app.
We will just enter the code really quick in
this field right here, where it says ‘input
your six digit authenticator code.
And then click thee enable two factor authentication
button right below it.
In order to complete setup.
And then it will take us to a page where it
says Two Factor Authentication enabled, with
a green check mark.
And then we’ll know that you have successfully
setup two factor authentication on your Bittrex
account.
And you can click the link here, that says
‘return to Bittrex home’.
It will actually take us right back to the
‘settings’ page for your account on Bittrex.
And now if you click the two factor authentication
link here on the left in the settings navigation
menu, it will actually show that your 2FA
status is enabled in green text just like
this.
And if you want to disable 2FA for whatever
reason, you could also do that in this area,
by just in putting the six digit authentication
code from your authenticator app and clicking
the disable 2FA button.
This would be handy say if you were switching
to a new phone.
Now that we have successfully secured your
account with two factor authentication, we
can leverage one last option to maximise your
account security.
It’s your withdrawal whitelist, which you
can access using the link here in the settings
navigation menu to the left.
The concept is simple here, you can enter
a wallet address for any Bittrex exchange
supported Cryptocurrency, and that will be
the only address that your account will be
alllowed to withdraw funds to for that type
of cryptocurrency.
It’s really easy to setup, you simply enter
the call letters of the currency in the left
field here.
Like BTC for example.
And then you can paste your receiving address
in the field to the right, and then click
the ‘Save Address’ button.
You’ll have to enter your authenticator six
digit code.
And it will save it to the list below.
You can remove and update addresses anytime
you want, say if you wanted to remove this
address, you can just click the little ‘x’
on the right here.
Then if you want to get even more comprehensive
with your security, you can use the IP address
whitelist, which will make it so you can only
log in to your Bittrex exchange account from
whichever IP addresses that you set it to.
To setup your IP address whitelist, simply
click the IP whitelist link on the left in
the navigation menu.
So think of it this way, each different internet
connection you use to connect to your Bittrex
exchange account, has a different IP address.
So you’ll want to whitelist the IP addresses
that you normally use.
And as you can see, it’s as easy as filling
out these four fields with your IP address
numbers, and clicking ‘save address’ to save
an IP address to your IP address whitelist,
in this list below, ‘Saved Addresses’.
And then the last security setting you may
need to use at some point is of course the
ability to change your password.
To do so just click the ‘password’ link in
the left navigational menu.
From here, you can change your password if
you need to, just fill out the form as it
appears here, enter your 2FA code and then
confirm the change by clicking ‘change password’.
So at this point, you should have a newly
registered and secured Bittrex account.
