To enhance the security level of using investment services (including securities and fund trading) and in response to the latest guideline of The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), GEO Securities Limited ("the Company") will implement measures of two-factor authentication (2FA). With effect from 23 April, 2018 ("Effective Date"), clients need to login to GEO NET Securities Services ("Relevant Channels") with two-factor authentication for the use of the NET securities services.

Features of Two-Factor Authentication:

Clients are required to login the Relevant Channels with two-factor authentication for execution of all instructions of Securities Trading services, such as order placement, account enquiry, IPO subscription, IPO loan subscription, etc.

Two-factor authentication uses a combination of two different factors for verifying the identity of user.
