What is Credential Stuffing Attack?
Credential Stuffing Attack is a type of cyberattack where stolen account credentials typically consisting of lists of usernames and/or email addresses and the corresponding passwords (often from a data breach) are used to gain unauthorized access to user accounts through large-scale automated login requests directed against a web application.

How to avoid Stuffing Attack?
Please use a random password and enable 2FA to avoid stuffing attack.

What is 2FA?

Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA or 2-Step Verification) is a technology that provides identification of users through the combination of two different components. CoinEx currently supports the following two 2FA tools: Google Authenticator and SMS code. When you are logging into your account, you are supposed to enter password as the first verification and enter 2FA code (SMS code or GA code) as the second verification to set up double protection for your account. For your account security, 2FA verification will be enabled by default after you bind your mobile phone or Google Authenticator.

You can follow the guidelines below to bind GA and mobile number:
