A trusted device is a device you've used before to sign in to your Robinhood account—it's a device we know is yours.
We automatically secure all Robinhood accounts with trusted devices, a form of two-factor authentication (2FA). With trusted devices, you’ll be required to enter a verification code when signing in from a new device—such as a new phone or laptop. By entering the code, you're verifying that you trust the new device.
Note: While trusted devices helps protect your Robinhood account from logins on new devices, we strongly recommend enabling 2FA using an authenticator app—a one-time step that helps protect your account for the long-term. Authenticator apps generate your verification codes directly on your device instead of sending them through text messages that could be intercepted by attackers.
In addition to two-factor authentication (2FA), trusted devices help protect all Robinhood accounts with an extra layer of security.
You can view and manage the devices that have been used to log in to your Robinhood account, and remove any you don’t recognize or no longer use. Keep in mind that the locations listed are approximate.
We strongly suggest reviewing and following these account security best practices for all your online accounts—especially for the email associated with your Robinhood account and phone provider.
