Our list of security features now has Geo-Lock Logins easily accessible to our users!
At CoinSpot, we offer an assortment of security features for users to protect and secure their CoinSpot account. One of those features is called Geo-Lock Logins, which allows users the ability to restrict logins to Australia only whilst blocking international logins.
We highly recommend our users ENABLE Geo-Lock Logins to prevent attempted unauthorised international logins.
If users are planning on travelling overseas or leaving Australia permanently we would recommend users have this disabled.
