The device you use to create your Bullish account is automatically registered as your linked device. We recommend using a personal device and linking more than one personal device for added security in the event you lose access to one of your linked devices.

You can add an internal device key, such as your laptop’s built-in biometric sensor or smartphone’s Face ID, and an external device key, such as a YubiKey®.

You can link or remove a device at any time, but you must have at least one linked device.

If you lose access to one or all of your devices, Bullish has an Account Recovery process that will allow you to quickly regain access to your account.
