As a steward of your money, M1 Finance takes security seriously. But there are a few steps you’ll want to take to protect yourself and keep your credentials safe:
- Use complicated, long passwords that contain many words and symbols.
- Make sure your password contains no personal information, including names or birthdays.
- Do not use the same password you use on another website — especially your email password.
- Never share your password.
- Utilize a password manager.
- Two factor authentication provides an extra layer of protection by requiring any person accessing your M1 account to also have access to your mobile phone.
- To enable two factor authentication go to Settings > Security.
