Balance Network Security


At least 97% of user balances on Balance are stored in offline Balance wallets managed by a special process. Our offline Balance wallets are multi-signature ("Multi Signature") wallets. Our wallets are stored on devices with FIPS-Level 2 security level. Our backups are protected in private security environments in different countries. Expenditures are made after digital signatures and controls are made.



Two-Factor Verification on Every Account

Your account has been made more secure with a second verification method other than your username and password. Each time you log into your account, a one-time password is sent to you via SMS. Moreover, you are not charged a fee for these SMSs. If you wish, you can also perform your two-step verification using the Google Authenticator application, which is a more secure method than the SMS password. To activate Google Authenticator, go to Security -> Two-Factor Authentication.

Information on Phishing Attacks and Fraud Attempts


Balance Network takes security measures above industry standards for the security of its users' accounts and cryptocurrency assets. However, cyber attackers may attempt phishing and fraud directly against users in order to obtain account information of users. We recommend our users to follow the steps below to protect themselves from malicious software, websites and fake applications created for phishing, phishing, forgery and password theft.



Balance Network Addresses


Balance Network, it should be ensured that you access www.balancenetwork.io and swap.balancenetwork.io, which are our internet addresses, and that the address starts with https://. When you want to log in to the Balance Network website, make sure that https://balancenetwork.io is written in the address line of your browser. We would like to remind you that cyber attackers can create imitations of Balance Network internet addresses by using non-Latin alphabet characters in search engine advertisements or social media channels. Please make sure to check that the address in your browser's address line does not really belong to Balance Network while accessing Balance Network websites or mobile applications with advertisements on search engines or social media channels.
From our live support channel, which you can access via our https://www.balancenetwork.io and https://swap.balancenetwork.io website and our application, you can check whether the advertisements and shares shared over the Internet or in some way belong to Balance Network. You can inquire by contacting our support team from our balancenetwork.io e-mail address and social media channels.



Balance Network Account Security


We recommend that you make sure that the software of the computers, tablets or smartphones you access Balance Network is up-to-date, that you do not install applications from unidentified sources, that you have internet security applications installed on your devices and that these applications are up-to-date. In particular, smart phones and computers with software installed from unknown sources can be captured by cyber attackers and the keyboards of these devices can be recorded. It is important for you to be sure of the security of the devices you access the Balance Network, so that you can safely transact in your Balance Network account. When logging into your BalanceNetwork account, a predefined security image will appear on the screen after you enter the correct username (e-mail address or ID number) and password. On the page where you need to enter your 2-Step Verification Code, if you cannot see the security image that is defined for your account and that you have viewed before, or if a different image appears on the screen, do not enter your 2-step verification code. If possible, take a screenshot including the address of the relevant page and inform the Balance Network support team as soon as possible.
For your account security, do not share your Balance Network account username and password with anyone. The Balance Network support team does not call you for any reason, asking for your account password or 2-step verification code, does not ask you to transfer crypto money from your account, does not ask you for a verification code, confirmation or permission to transfer the crypto money in your account to any address! Do not share your personal information, password or 2-step verification code with people who state that Balance Network is calling you. If the callers ask you to approve the cryptocurrency withdrawal from your Balance Network account, do not confirm the transaction. Do not give credit to people who use the name of our company to make statements that the operation of the Balance Network has changed or that your profile information has been captured, or who state that they will make investment recommendations that you will gain, and who demand compensation from you in terms of cash, securities and real estate. In similar cases, you can request information by contacting us via Live Support, e-mail and social media channels.



Additional Safety Precautions


We recommend that you use Authenticator applications as the 2-step verification method you use when logging in to your Balance Network account and defining Balance Network and cryptocurrency withdrawal address to your Balance Network account. 2-step verification codes with SMS should not be preferred due to both the protection from the problems that may be experienced in SMS transmissions originating from the operator and the risk of copying SIM cards. In addition to the Google Authenticator application to generate your 2-step verification codes, you can use alternative applications such as Lastpass Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator, which further increase application security with a pin code.



We recommend that you create your Phishing Code in order to ensure that the system messages sent to your e-mail address are sent to the Balance Network. You can set your phishing code on the Security > Phishing Code page. After determining your phishing code, you can verify that the e-mail was indeed sent by Balance Network by checking this code in all system e-mails that concern your Balance Network account. Do not neglect the precautions you need to take individually for the privacy of your personal information. We recommend that you do not share your password, bank account details, identity and Balance Network user information in a virtual or physical environment.


The e-mail address to which you are a member of Balance Network and the passwords of your Balance Network account must be different from each other, these passwords must contain at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one number and one special character (eg *,?.#!- etc.), and Make sure your passwords are at least 8 characters long. For your account security, we recommend that you change your passwords at least every 3 months. Your Balance Network account password must be changed every 90 days.


You can access Balance Network social media accounts in the "We in Social Media" section at the bottom of our website. Please do not respect social media accounts that have not been announced through official channels and are not related to Balance Network.

Balance Network Why Am I Performing SMS Verification?

Balance Network

When logging into your Balance Network account, 2-Step Verification is applied to verify that the person logging in is the real owner of the account. Accordingly, when logging into your account, a 6-digit temporary security code is sent via SMS to your GSM number registered in the system, after the correct e-mail address/ID Identity Number and password are entered.
After your first login to your account with SMS verification, we recommend using Authenticator applications as a 2-Step Verification method. You can log in using temporary codes generated every 30 seconds by pairing Google Authenticator, Lastpass Authenticator, Authy, Microsoft Authenticator and other similar apps with your account. Using Authenticator applications as a 2-Step Verification method eliminates the risk of accessing your account by copying your GSM number without your permission.

Withdrawing Bitcoin to the Wrong Address


Bitcoin is irreversible by nature. Before Bitcoin withdrawals, the recipient addresses are checked for compliance with the algorithms. Addresses suitable for the algorithm are considered valid. However, e-mail confirmation is still required in transfer transactions so that users can check the recipient address and shipping amount. After the e-mail confirmation, the transfer process is automatically initiated by the Bitcoin wallet. Therefore, your Bitcoin withdrawal cannot be canceled after the email confirmation is given. Even if the address you are withdrawing from has not yet been generated, if the cryptocurrency wallet can verify the address, the transaction is sent to the network (blockchain) and the transaction is irreversible. It is not possible to refund the amounts of Bitcoin withdrawals made to the wrong address.
