unless they have a direct access to your OTP.

We also provide SMS notifications, notifying you of new log-ins

and you can always check your log-in history at [My Page] – [Access Information].

and other security breaches including personal information leaks.

Bithumb’s security standard matches that of major banks in Korea.
