Your security

Keeping your personal and financial information secure is our priority and when you access your Caxton account, it’s important that we know that it’s you. Here’s some of the measures we have in place:

  • Providing Information – We’ll never call or email you asking for your full Caxton Card details, your PIN, one-time passcodes or passwords. If you do receive a call asking for this information, simply end the call and get in touch with us directly.

  • Log in details – when you open a Caxton account, you’ll set up online login details unique to you. These will be your email address and password, to protect yourself we recommend you do not share them.

  • Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) – The introduction of SCA legislation by the EU in 2019 require Caxton to apply Strong Customer Authentication when you access your account. This means that you will have to enter your password (known only to you) and a code that we will send to either your registered mobile phone or your registered e-mail address.<br><br>
