Keeping Your LegitPay.ng Account Safe
LegitPay.ng follows strict internal security practices aimed at keeping your earnings safe.
It is, however, important that you also take certain precautions to ensure that you are the only person with access to your account. If someone gains access to your account, your earnings may be at risk
Some of the most common methods that scammers may use to gain access to and perform unauthorized transactions on your account are explained below:
Account takeovers: LegitPay.ng relies on your email address and phone number for communication with you. If someone gains unauthorised control over these, they could potentially gain access to your LegitPay.ng account. It is therefore, important to make sure that you have strong security on your email and LegitPay.ng accounts.
Phishing: This is when you are tricked into revealing personal information, such as usernames, passwords, or other sensitive information. Phishing can take many forms, for example:
Emails: You may receive an email that appears to be from LegitPay.ng but was actually sent by a scammer, asking you for information or leading you to a fraudulent website.
Phishing websites: These websites are set up to look like LegitPay.ng’s website, but everything entered there (like your username and password) gets recorded in order for scammers to access your actual LegitPay.ng's account. In some cases, these websites are promoted by running adverts that look like they’re taking you to the legitimate LegitPay.ng's website.
Phone scams: Someone may call you, pretending to be from LegitPay.ng, asking you to provide your username, password, and other information in order to access your LegitPay.ng account.
SMS / instant messaging scams: In this case, a fraudster will send you a message purporting to be from LegitPay.ng and prompting you to share your username, password, or other information, or to select a link.
LegitPay.ng will never call, email, or SMS/instant message you and ask you for your password. If anyone contacts you claiming to be from LegitPay.ng and asks for this information, you should end communication and get in touch with us by contacting support yourself.
Malware: This is an advanced method where scammers gain access to your devices through sophisticated software programs that allow them to take control of your computer, steal your passwords or other sensitive information.
MEASURES YOU SHOULD TAKE TO PROTECT YOUR LEGITPAY ACCOUNT
Strong password security: Use a unique, strong password with at least 16 characters and never share it or reuse it on other websites. Password managers make it easy to generate and store strong passwords. LegitPay.ng recommends LastPass, but there are several alternatives.

Don’t share sensitive information: LegitPay.ng employees will never ask you for your password, 2FA code, one time pins (OTPs) or ask you to authorise transactions.
