PIN forgotten

If you forgot your PIN, you can recover it using our PIN Recovery Service, and an email with your PIN will be sent to your registered email address.

To have your PIN emailed to you, follow these instructions:

  1. Load our software.
  2. Enter your username and password in the appropriate place.
  3. Click on Log in.
  4. Click on PIN Recovery Service.

Your PIN will be emailed to the email address associated with your account.

If the automated email we send does not appear in your inbox, it may have been filtered into a junk or spam folder. Please check these folders for an email from us. To prevent this issue from reoccurring, try adjusting your email accounts filter settings or add the email address our emails are coming from to your address book or contact list.

If you have your mobile phone validated in your account, your PIN will be sent via SMS.

If you cannot reset your PIN, we'd need you to answer a few questions that only the account holder would know:

  • What is your registered date of birth?
  • What is your registered phone number?
  • Please mention a previous deposit/withdrawal method that you have used on your account.
  • Any additional information that may help us verify ownership (e.g. previously registered mailing/email address, approximate current balance, last login, an image on your account).
