Fund Password: A New Security Feature For Faster and Safer Transactions on Binance P2P

2022-11-21

Main Takeaways

  • User safety and protection are Binance’s top priority. With our new Fund Password feature, users can release orders with a preset password instead of SMS or Google authentication. 

  • The new security feature facilitates faster release of orders and reduces the likelihood of users falling prey to phishing attacks disguised as authentication messages sent by Binance.  

Our new Fund Password feature, available on the Binance app, is a security tool that helps make transactions on Binance P2P even faster and safer!

Peer-to-peer (P2P) trading involves users directly buying and selling crypto to one another without the need for an intermediary. This method offers sellers the freedom to choose their preferred payment method, while buyers have the flexibility to purchase crypto from whomever they wish at their preferred prices. 

Launched in 2019, Binance P2P offers users unmatched liquidity and robust security. What’s more, the platform is also one of the easiest gateways for users to access crypto, with over 700 payment methods and 100 local currencies supported. 

Since the launch, we’re committed to constantly improving users’ trading experience and safety. This is why we’ve launched the new Fund Password feature, a security mechanism that makes transactions on our P2P exchange platform faster and safer than ever. 

What is Fund Password and When Can You Use It? 

Currently available on the Binance app only, Fund Password allows users to release orders with a preset password instead of SMS or Google-powered two-factor authentication. It can be used for orders worth 500 USD or less

Please note that Fund Password is only available on Binance app version v2.55.0 or above. 

Benefits of Enabling Your Fund Password 

By enabling your Fund Password, you can potentially avoid the problem of delayed authentication text messages caused by subpar connectivity or issues with local mobile carriers. The Fund Password can also facilitate faster release of orders and, most importantly, minimize the chances of users falling prey to phishing SMS messages. 

Trusted by millions of users worldwide, Binance P2P offers low transaction fees and flexible payment methods. Start trading today.
