There are many hackers around trying to get access to your account.

We have already reported many phishing sites and got them taken down at it is something we do on a daily basis. However some people still fall for these traps, they look legitimate and are very difficult to spot at first glimpse.

Here are a few things you need to keep in mind:

  • When entering your login details, always make sure you are on https://www.paxful.com
  • Paxful will never ask for your login details via email or ask you to enter them
  • Moderators will never ask you to click on a link and enter your details in the trade chat

Hackers use many tactics to trick people and get them to pass over sensitive data. Some ways of tricking users is by using links that are very similar to the original, for example: www.paxful.co, www.paxful.io, www.paxful-marketplace.com

Bitcoin transactions are irreversible, this is why you must always make sure no one else but yourself has access to your account. If you suspect something is not quite right, please change your password and get in touch with our support immediately.
