Account security - Security features

Your account's protected by the security of your password. If you can keep your password secret, then no one else will be able to log into your account.

The security features that we offer to protect your account are:

  • PIN: This is similar to the PIN you enter in a keypad at cash machines and in stores. You'll need to enter it each time you log in and also when completing certain activities within the game, such as Cashier-related transactions.
  • RSA Security Token: An RSA Security Token is a piece of hardware issued by us, in addition to your password. It'll help combat keyloggers, as someone trying to access your account will need to have the RSA Security Token physically with them. This is known as two-factor authentication: something you know (your password) and something you have (your token).

They're both available from the following options in the main lobby:

  1. Settings
  2. Account Details

Or, if you're using a mobile:

  1. Menu (Android) or More (iOS)
  2. Settings & Tools
  3. Login Security Settings

If you're using the PokerStars Next Gen app:

  1. Tap on the Account icon to launch the Account Panel.
  2. Login & Security

Alternatively, log into your account on our website and select:

  1. Account
  2. Settings
