What is an Anti-Phishing Code?

The Anti-Phishing Code is a security feature provided by Binance that allows users to add an extra layer of security to their account. Once you have enabled the Anti-Phishing Code, it will be included in all genuine emails sent to you from Binance. This code will help you to discern real emails from phishing emails, helping you to prevent phishing attempts.
