SMS Validation (Beta)

The award-winning PokerStars software is the safest online, and now you can increase the security of your player account by using “SMS Validation”.

When activated, you will receive a SMS text message with a secret code when potential irregularities with the operation of your PokerStars account are detected by PokerStars systems. 

The ability to conduct real money transactions (including deposit, cash out, transfer, tournament registrations and cash games play) will be suspended until you enter the secret code (that was sent by SMS text message) into the PokerStars software when prompted. 

This service is free to all users, and adds an additional security mechanism to ensure that PokerStars player accounts remain safe and secure against different online threats.
