We want to keep your Robinhood account as safe and secure as possible. Our Robinhood Security team uses a number of industry-standard measures to help protect your Robinhood account.
Device approvals are an extra level of security meant to help keep your Robinhood account safe. Any time you update your account information or log in to Robinhood on a new device, we’ll send a notification to each of your mobile devices to verify it’s really you taking the action. You can either approve the notification to complete the action, or deny it to help secure your Robinhood account instantly.
If you haven’t already enabled Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), you’ll automatically start receiving device approval notifications.
If you aren't receiving them, you can set your preferred 2FA method to Device approvals in the app or on the web:
Alternatively, check out Two-factor authentication for details on how to enable 2FA to use SMS or an authenticator app.

Robinhood Financial LLC cannot always guarantee delivery of push notifications. Device approvals are subject to service availability, your Robinhood app and mobile device settings.
