Enable two-factor authentication for your account. This protects you when a someone finds your password. With two-factor authentication enabled, it is not possible to log in to your account if someone knows only your password.
Remember to write down the backup codes, preferably on paper, in case you lose your codes. Make sure Login guard is enabled. It protects you from logins from unknown web browsers. When Login Guard detects a login from a new web browser it asks you to confirm your browser by clicking a link sent to the email address you have used to register your account.
Login Guard is automatically turned on for all new users. Read more about Login Guard Remember to use a strong password, one with at least 10 characters. Do not use the same password on other websites and do not give your password to other people, even your friends.
Do not use an email provider that does not require a password, like yopmail, as it makes it possible to access your account without needing to know your password. If you want a secure, anonymous, email use a service such as Tutanota.
You can enable all of these security features under Security from your profile. If your user account is compromised you will lose your Bitcoins, and because Bitcoin transactions are NOT reversible it is not possible for LocalBitcoins to help you get them back.
That's why it's very important to follow the security tips given above. What should I do if someone else has accessed my account? Immediately change your password. Immediately open up a support ticket explaining what happened and include your account name, the email you used to register on LocalBitcoins, your name, IP address, phone number associated with your account and your recent site activity.

We recommend you use mobile based two-factor authentication and only use paper based if you do not have access to a smartphone. When activating two-factor authentication it is very important that you write down the backup code and keep it in a safe place, preferably on paper. If you lose access to your two-factor codes you will not be able to log in to your account and it will require a two-factor reset which takes two weeks to process.
Activate mobile based two-factor authentication Visit the two-factor activation page and choose I want to use mobile app based two-factor authentication. Install the authentication app on your phone. You can find it from the app store. On the LocalBitcoins web page, press Proceed to activation. Write down the backup code shown on the page and keep it in a safe place, preferably on paper.

Is it possible to change my username? Currently we do not allow username changes due to security reasons. Is using a Tor browser safe? If you are not a tech-savvy user we recommend avoid using a Tor browser when purchasing Bitcoins. When using a Tor browser you are at risk for man-in-the-middle-attacks by malicious Tor exit nodes. A malicious Tor exit node intercepts the traffic between your computer and LocalBitcoins and then steals your Bitcoins.
If you want to maintain safety and privacy we recommend purchasing Bitcoins on LocalBitcoins using a normal web browser. After the purchase send Bitcoins to a desktop application wallet from where you can make further payments. See Bitcoin wallet alternatives for your device. LocalBitcoins has witnessed high attack rates against Tor users. Read research by Tor authors about the malicious Tor exit nodes.
Two-factor authentication and other normal security measures does not protect against traffic interception attacks as the attacker can modify Bitcoin send requests to go to a wrong receiving Bitcoin address.
