    I know I'll probably get lectured for this but I don't have 2 factor authentication set-upon any of my crypto betting accounts. In some of the accounts I have more than a thousand dollars. How stupid am I? My password is pretty strong so I figure I don't need one.

    I use it all the time at crypto gambling sites because I think it's necessary. If you are using a regular bookmaker like Bet365 or Ladbrokes they'll ask you to make a deposit first with your Skrill or Neteller account for example, then you can only withdraw to that same account that is already linked to you. That makes it very hard to steal from you. With crypto, anyone who guesses or steals your ID will be able to login and withdraw your BTC to a wallet.

    i'm embarrassed to admit that i've never switched it on. it's a pain in the ass having to put in some number every time and if you lose your phone you are locked out permanently.

    the last time i made a withdrawal from nitrogen sports, it forced me to set-up 2 factor verification. you cannot make a withdrawal now until you have setup 2 fa.

    I switched off 2 FA after making some withdrawals and their customer support contacted me telling me to stop doing that.

    I am using 2 FA when it comes to my financial accounts for additional security, especially accounts where I have to leave money for a long time.
