How To Switch Between Pro & Lite Modes On Binance

Binance is the most popular centralized crypto exchange in the market and the largest exchange by daily trading volume.

On the Binance mobile app, there are two modes – the Binance Lite Mode which is targeted at new users of the platform, and the Binance Pro Mode which is targeted at users with more trading and investing experience in the Binance ecosystem.

If you’re looking to switch from Binance Pro to Binance Lite or from Binance Lite to Binance Pro on the Binance app, then you’re on the right page.

In this article, we will show you how to switch between Pro and Lite Modes on the Binance app and also highlight the difference between these two versions of the Binance exchange.

Binance Pro Vs Binance Lite: What’s The Difference?

The Binance Lite Mode is the default mode you will see after downloading and installing the Binance app on your device and signing into your account for the first time.

This mode offers a very easy-to-use interface and is designed to be used by all Binance users regardless of their crypto investing experience.

On the Binance Lite Mode, you can buy, sell and convert various cryptocurrencies supported by Binance. You can also deposit both fiat and crypto currencies in this mode as well as monitor the price and recent activity on your favorite coins/tokens.

The Binance Pro Mode is quite different. It is mainly targeted at experienced Binance users and it offers more features when compared to the Binance Lite mode.

In addition to the features available on Binance Lite, the Binance Pro Mode allows users to trade futures, swap cryptocurrencies using the available trading pairs, trade P2P, access the Binance Earn platform, trade NFTs, stake supported coins, and more.

The main difference between the Binance Lite Mode and the Binance Pro Mode is that the Pro Mode has more features that are mostly geared toward users with more trading and investing experience on Binance.

The default mode when you launch the Binance app for the first time (after installation) is the Binance Lite Mode. 

If you want to switch to the Pro Mode on the Binance app, you first need to sign into your Binance account then select the Account Profile icon and toggle the switch OFF to switch modes.

Below is a step-by-step guide (with screenshots) on how to switch from Binance Lite to Binance Pro mode on the Binance app.

Step 1: Open the Binance app and sign into your account.

Open the Binance app on your mobile device and enter your email address/phone number and password to sign into your account.

Step 2: Tap the Account icon.

After signing into your account and unlocking the Binance mobile app, you should see the Binance dashboard with the Binance Lite Mode enabled.

Tap on the Account icon on the top left corner of the Binance app home screen/dashboard to reveal the main menu as illustrated in the screenshot below.

On the menu, tap on the toggle/switch next to “Binance Lite” to turn off the Binance Lite Mode and switch to the Binance Pro Mode.

On the Binance Pro Mode, you can access more features available on the Binance app including P2P trading, swap farming, strategy trading, Binance Earn, referrals, and more.

If you simply want to use Binance for buying and selling cryptocurrencies, then we recommend sticking to the Binance Lite mode as it is less clunky and offers an easier experience, especially for users who are new to the Binance platform.

How To Switch From Binance Pro To Binance Lite

Switching from the Binance Pro mode to the Binance Lite mode is similar to the process of switching from Lite to Pro but in reverse.

Step 3: Toggle Binance Lite ON.

That said, the web version of Binance to quite similar to the Lite mode on mobile and you should get used to it in no time as it is quite easy to navigate.

You can access all the features of Binance directly on the dashboard of the Binance exchange website without having to switch to a “Pro mode”. 

All features including P2P trading, margin trading, Binance futures, Binance Earn, yield farming, and many more can be found on the menu after signing into your account on the Binance website.
