Crypto Coins Exchanges will ask information about you before Registering you on their platforms. They may ask for a Front and Back Photo of your National ID Card, Passport, Driving Licence. This is however with good intention so that they can help you e.g. recover your password should you forget it and also as an additional security feature for your account.
One important thing that you should keep in mind and always do after opening an account on any Exchange is to Enable 2FA for Optimum Security beyond the Traditional Password. This is what we call Two Factor Authentication. The Exchange you subscribe to will
give you clear details on how to secure you account with the 2FA in their platform. It is easy! They have clear and simple to follow instructions on how to configure it.
