Keeping your Robinhood account safe and secure is one of our top priorities.The 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 device(s) to verify it’s really you taking the action. You can either approve the notification to complete the action, or deny it and help secure your Robinhood account instantly.
If you haven’t already enabled Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), you’ll automatically start receiving device approvals. If you aren't receiving them, make sure your preferred 2FA method is set to device approvals. For more information on updating your 2FA settings, visit our Help Center.
