Tip: Use Two-Factor Authentication at Sportsbooks

Share with:

An SBR Forum poster recently shared that his sports betting account had over $2,000 paid to an unauthorized individual.

The player could have secured his account by using two-factor authentication (2FA) but believed his setup was good enough and didn't want to have go through an additional step to withdraw his funds.

Two-factor authentication should be used whenever available from online sportsbooks.

Players can enable 2FA through their mobile phones by having SMS (text) messages sent to their device. Unless a player enters the code received via SMS, no withdrawal would be possible. 2FA can also be configured through Google Authenticator.
