  • Making changes to your profile and settings
Are there other alternatives?

To ensure the security of your account, Swissquote always requires two‑factor authentication to verify your login and transactions.

We highly recommend Mobile Level 3 as your authentication method, as it is the fastest and most secure option.

If for some reason Mobile Level 3 is not an option for you, the Level 3 Card, which we send to your address by post, can be used as an alternative.
