Verified Exchangers, Merchants and Bitcoin with SolidTrust Pay

When you’re spending, transferring or exchanging your money with a company online, what you really need is trust. At SolidTrust Pay, we’re dedicated to not only building that trust with our members and daily users, but to extending it to our verified exchangers, as well as the merchants who use our services. Whether you’re buying or selling online, exchanging currencies and Bitcoin, or simply trying to send money to a friend or family member — the safety and security of each online transaction is essential.

SolidTrust Pay inspects and verifies the legitimacy of each exchanger, merchant, and member we choose to work with. We don’t see this as simply following the rules set for online payment processors, but also as an opportunity to get to know our users and to build a strong and reliable network for them. Our network of trust allows us to operate more smoothly and efficiently, as well as minimize fraud and credit card chargebacks.

With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of our verified exchangers, which is kept up-to-date for your convenience and security. Likewise, any merchant who offers SolidTrust Pay as a payment option has been verified by us, and is regularly checked for legitimacy. Even our ordinary members are required to pass certain levels of identification verification before being allowed to make most transaction types. This all contributes to the level of assurance and reliability you can expect from us.

Some other benefits of becoming a member of our network include:

  • The easy facilitation of Bitcoin transfers and exchanges, allowing you to get your Bitcoin from your wallet, to your SolidTrust Pay account, to your bank account!
  • The ability for merchants to receive direct bank deposits, even from users who are not signed up for a SolidTrust Pay account!
  • And now even faster and more cost-efficient wire withdrawal options are available through Transpay, assuring you get your money where you need it, when you need it!
  • An innovative way for users to instantly verify their credit card and begin making transactions via our micro-verification process — without losing peace of mind.

If you’re interested in joining the network and becoming one of our verified exchangers or merchants, or simply using our services for your online shopping and ecommerce needs, don’t hesitate to reach out to us to learn more about what we can do for you!

Have You Acted After the Biggest Hack Ever?

Last week, the tech company Yahoo confirmed that more than 500 million user accounts were hacked in 2014; one of the biggest data breaches ever.

Real names, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, security questions, and passwords were all compromised, so not only is your Yahoo e-mail account at risk, so is any other account where you reused usernames or passwords.

One estimate from the Security Research department at the University of Cambridge puts password reuse as high as 49%. That means when a hacker scores a password they can use the same password to gain access to other accounts about half the time.

A more extreme survey conducted by mobile-identity company TeleSign showed that nearly 75% of folks use the same passwords and many haven’t changed their passwords in five years or more. Nearly a quarter of people still use passwords that are more than 10 years old. That’s a lot of time to have a password hacked.

And once hackers have a single password, they can potentially use that one account to obtain access to many more of your e-mail accounts, social media accounts, or even your banking and financial details.

You could also see an increase in “phishing e-mails” that try to get you to click on a link that asks for personal information, credit-card numbers, or to log in before viewing a document.

Here’s a few things that you can do to make sure you stay safe:

Close old accounts. One problem with the Yahoo hack is that it took more than two years for the company to discover that it had been hacked. And it’s only notifying you that your personal information was leaked if you log in to your account.

If your Yahoo account was an old one that you no longer regularly use, you may not even realize that there was a breach – or that any accounts for which you used the same password are now at risk.

Change your passwords, and use better ones. The longer your password, the more you increase your security. A six-word password phrase would take 3,505 years to crack (at 1 trillion guesses per second).

Use “two-factor authentication.” Two-factor authentication requires your password plus another piece of information – like a code sent to your e-mail or mobile device associated with your account – to log in to a website. I love using this feature.

Many companies – including Google, Apple, Microsoft, and password-managing service LastPass – give you the option of using two-factor authentication, as do many banks, brokerages, and credit-card companies. SolidTrust Pay has had its secondary password feature, a form of 2FA, for over 10 years (before anyone else even thought of it)!

Create your own security question. Many websites ask extra “security questions” when you register. Like your first pet’s name, the color of your first car, or your mother’s maiden name. If you ever forget your password, the site can use these questions to verify your identity.

Here’s the problem: Instead of protecting your personal account information, they may be doing the exact opposite. The easier a question is to remember, the easier it is for a hacker to guess…

STPay always requires you to create your own question, something that needs a detailed answer that someone can’t find online. Or if you can’t do that, give unrelated answers.

For example, if the question is “What was the color of your first car,” answer with something like “campingmelon” or – even more secure – a random sequence of letters, numbers, and symbols.

If you’re not able to remember the answers, you can write them down (just keep the paper secure) or use a password manager like LastPass or similar company.

YOUR ACCOUNT ACCESS IS ULTIMATELY YOUR RESPONSIBILITY and the Yahoo hack drives that home for everyone.
