New security SMS available on PokerStars

This Monday, PokerStars announced a new security feature designed to protect the accounts of its players.

The service is free for all. For now, only a few countries will be able to use this option, but shortly, all players will be able to enjoy.

To activate this option, nothing simpler: in the main lobby, go to Account/Enter SMS Validation code.

You will need to have a cell phone number associated with your account so that the option works.
