Tips for accessing your CurrencyFair account during the holidays:
You may need to log in to CurrencyFair or add a new bank account while you’re away over the holidays. To do this, you will need to complete Two-Factor Authentication. Find out how to set this up here, or download it for iOS and Android. For even greater convenience, you can also sync the Google Authenticator app to your CurrencyFair account.
If you won’t have access to your Primary phone number, add a Secondary phone number before you leave for the holidays in the My Profile > Phone Numbers section of your CurrencyFair account.
