Announcements > Platform Update February 05, 2020

We're excited to announce a platform update that brings new important features to Bitfinex traders.

  • Addition of a One-Time Password (OTP) fallback option that users can opt for, providing them with the alternative of using Google Authenticator or Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) at log-in in case both are enabled. The OTP fallback option also applies to Bitrefill payments.
  • Enhanced account security for users who have not activated Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for their accounts. After logging in, these users would receive an email with a link to confirm their ownership and access their accounts. We invite all users to activate 2FA to increase their security level.
  • Improved REST API interface code.

We have recently delisted Bitcoin Interest (BCI) and Banyan Network (BBN) from our platform. As withdrawals for BCI and BBN will only remain open until 15/02/20 at 10:00 AM UTC, we invite all users to withdraw BCI and/or BBN tokens as soon as possible.
