HitPay security features: How to keep your HitPay account safe

As online scams become more common and more sophisticated, we’ve taken extra precautions to protect you and your customers. Learn about HitPay's security features and the steps you can take to keep your account safe.

Protect your HitPay account in just 4 steps

Here are 3 essential steps you can take to keep your account secure:

1) Set up 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) on HitPay

2FA is an additional login step to verify it’s you signing in. This protects your HitPay account in case someone learns your password.

Follow this step-by-step guide to enable 2FA. You'll need either the Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator app.

Once 2FA is active, enter the 2FA code from the authenticator app when you log in to HitPay.

2) Review your account password

Set a unique password you’re not using elsewhere and keep it confidential. Use a mix of letters, numbers, or upper and lowercase characters to improve your password security. If you suspect your account has been compromised, change your password immediately.

3) Review the security of your WiFi network and device

Avoid using public computers and WiFi networks to access your HitPay account. Always use a mobile device or computer you trust. Ensure you’re running the latest operating system and browser version. To be more secure, install an updated anti-virus solution.

4) Be careful of impersonators

Scammers may pretend to be HitPay in an attempt to phish for your login details. Always check that the sender is from HitPay's verified channels, especially before clicking on a link.
