FAMEEX Urges Users on High Alert Against Rampant Scams as Fraud Scheme Flourishes
As a registered digital currency exchange provider in Australia, FAMEEX strictly follows the law and regulations around the world by providing services to more than 30 places. Keeping the security of users’ funds as the most important issue, FAMEEX, therefore, utilizes a four-layer ladder encryption protection mechanism. In addition to the robust protection, FAMEEX needs users to put on high alert together in order to keep scammers at bay.
Four-Layer Ladder Encryption Protection Mechanism
The encryption protection mechanism ensures the security of funds, which can guarantee all links of on-chain storage, on-chain and off-chain are free from all forms of technical threats, including Sybil attack, Denial of Service attack, Eclipse attack, Dust attack, CC attack or DNS hijacking.
Firstly, FAMEEX adopts a tamper-proof full node wallet to synchronize all data on the blockchain, so that the platform will not be hacked easily. Secondly, the asymmetric encrypted one-way hash function algorithm is implemented to generate the one-way private key and public key, which ensures the funds on the chain are undecipherable. FAMEEX also separates and encrypts the hot and cold wallets and lastly FAMEEX randomly splits the private key before they are encrypted and stored in the database as well as setting multiple read permissions.
Security Verification Features
Users would be indicated to set up a more sophisticated and less likely to be hacked password. Through notifications, FAMEEX lets users know to change passwords regularly in case of any malicious attack. Users can check their login records on the official website or App to learn if any suspicious activities are happening.
FAMEEX supports eight different security verification features, ranging from the basic cell phone and Email verifications to anti-phishing and Google Authenticator. Users can avoid being exploited or hacked by checking their security log and device management section regularly.
