Stay Alert, Stay Safe: Navigating Scam Awareness Week with Bitget

This week marks an important event in Australia – Scam Awareness Week. At Bitget, we are committed to ensuring the safety and security of our users, and we take this opportunity to remind you of the importance of staying vigilant against scams.

According to the Australian National Anti-Scam Centre, in 2023 alone, a total of AUD$92 million has been stolen by scams – which is a significant chunk of people's earnings. While we've worked night and day enhancing our platform's security, we don't want you to be the next victim. Let's take a brief walk of how scammers can waltz into your daily life:

1. Phishing scams are prevalent, often manifesting as urgent emails about unauthorized access, texts about time-sensitive rewards, or fake customer support messages from crypto exchanges. These scammers use tactics like creating a sense of urgency to provoke quick action. Learn more about smart strategies to counter phishing scams.

2. In addition to phishing, be aware of other cryptocurrency scams like Ponzi schemes, fake ICOs/IEOs, and hacking attacks. These scams typically aim to steal sensitive information like passwords or private keys. Read our article on The Dark Side of Cryptocurrency: Scams and Fraud to Watch Out For.

3. Bitget offers comprehensive security measures to protect your assets, including Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), advanced security settings, and device management. Here is an advanced security guide on Bitget to make it easy for you to set up these features.

We also encourage you to share your experiences and insights. If you've encountered a scam attempt or have tips on staying safe, please share them. Your input is invaluable in helping others.

Together, we can create a safer environment for everyone in the crypto space. Let's use Scam Awareness Week as a stepping stone towards heightened vigilance and security, and let’s stay up to date by learning more with Bitget Academy!
