In case you are unable to access your Bitkub account due to your 2-Factor Authentication being locked for different reasons such as your mobile number changed, phone lost, the Google Authenticator application was deleted, etc., you can submit a request to unlock the 2FA for your account through the Persona system. Please see the instructions below.
What you need to prepare
- A mobile phone or a laptop with a camera
Your Thai national ID (for Thai users) or a passport (for foreign users)
