Do any users of the Bet Engine have any issues with having this enabled on your account, the user guide recommends that you don’t use it which seams ridiculous to me, they do have a workaround for it but basically the software won’t reconnect to Betfair if it is lost which is obviously an issue do you have it enabled  @Ian @ArtTest ?

Here is the issue.

If Betfair API goes down, with 2-step verification TBE cannot automatically reconnect to Betfair and continue betting.

You can set limits on your betfair account that will stop any hackers from moving all your money to Poker then going all-in to lose to drain your account.

So, your choice, either extra security or some missed bets, regrettably not both.

 

I don’t use 2-step, but I use Roboform (other password managers are available) and change a 20-character password containing uppercase, lowercase and punctuation every 30 days.

I have not used a VPS before and have some questions if you don’t mind answering them.

I have looked at the Tagadab website and found a You Tube video as well so I have a reasonable understanding of how it works.

My questions are:

  • If I want to continue to use 2 factor authentication on my Betfair account and Betfair crashes will I need to log in again to Bet Engine to make sure that it works?
  • Can you suggest an app to install on a smartphone or tablet to access Tagadab when not at home?
  • Will it be possible to use Tagadab for any future FTS bots as well?
  • I currently automate some of my bets using Bet Angel automation. Is it possible to use Tagadab to run this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Geoff,

  • If I want to continue to use 2 factor authentication on my Betfair account and Betfair crashes will I need to log in again to Bet Engine to make sure that it works?
    That is my understanding, yes. I believe that’s true for all Betfair bots
  • Can you suggest an app to install on a smartphone or tablet to access Tagadab when not at home?
    Go to AppStore or Google Play and search for “remote access”, I think Microsoft Remote Access is one that is available on both platforms.
  • Will it be possible to use Tagadab for any future FTS bots as well?
    Should be
  • I currently automate some of my bets using Bet Angel automation. Is it possible to use Tagadab to run this?
    Absolutely.

Regards

Until recently I didn’t have 2 step set up, I was viewing login details and I had attempted logins from at least 5 different countries over the last 10 days.

I now have 2 step setup.

Just to contribute to the discussion, I am using BF Bot Manager and use 2FA to log in. My “uptime” is currently 31 days without an issue, with the previous break coming because my VPS had updates to be made. So my question would be, how often/likely is it that BF API goes down as my bot doesn’t seem to have any issues?

I have decided to keep the two step active and if i miss a few bets due to an outage I will live with it, rather that than lose my entire balance to some scum bag in Russia (other countries are also scum bags too)
