PIN-based authentication is a security and usability feature for Betfair’s mobile applications. It allows you to quickly login to your account by typing a 4 digit authentication pin.
If you need any help changing your PIN, simply choose the App you're using for more help:
Is it safe?
It is safer than your username and password alone. Your PIN is tied to your specific mobile device and uses strong encryption schemes to transmit your authentication details from your mobile device to Betfair. The PIN is tied to your mobile device so it can be only used by that device.
How do I use it?
You can enable PIN-based authentication from Betfair’s mobile application. The PIN that you choose will be tied to your specific account and will be used on subsequent logins instead of your username and password.
Do I have to use it?
You do not have to use PIN-based authentication but if you are looking for a quick, convenient, and secure way to login into your Betfair account, it will come in very handy.
How do I disable it?
In order to disable PIN-based authentication you will need to open Betfair’s mobile application, and switch off PIN authentication. After this action is completed you will login as usual by using your username and password.
