Why do I have to verify my phone number before I withdraw?

Verifying your phone number (a.k.a, using MFA - Multi Factor Authentication) before you withdraw allows us to verify who you are directly. Relying only on a password is less secure, because a password is something that someone else may be able to obtain. Multi-Factoring Authentication (MFA), is a powerful tool against hackers and scammers.

NOTE: Multi Factor Authentication is only required for North American customers that create Personal campaigns.
