Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Why cant I reset my password?

Coinbase takes a number of steps to ensure the security of our customers accounts. These include enforcing strong passwords, two-factor authentication, and device verification.

When a customer attempts to reset their password, we take precautions to ensure that it is a legitimate request. This means that our customers may only reset their passwords from devices they have previously verified, or from locations they have previously logged in from. This requirement provides a safeguard against attempts to illegitimately reset your password.

If you are having trouble resetting your password, you will need to:
  1. Reset it from a device you have previously used to access Coinbase.
  2. Reset it from a location (IP address) youve previously used to access Coinbase.
As a security precaution, if you reset your password from a new device, you won’t be able to send crypto from your account for up to 48 hours. To avoid this send restriction, request a password reset from a previously authorized device.

If you no longer have access to a previously validated device or IP address, please contact Coinbase Support so we can have a member of our security team assist you with a password reset.

Important: Coinbase Support will NEVER ask for your account password or 2-step verification codes.


Why will my password reset require 24 hours to process?

As noted above, Coinbase only processes password reset requests from devices that have been previously authorized to access your account. If you are resetting your password from a new device, our system may delay the processing time for 24 hours in the interest of keeping your account secure. This can be bypassed by resetting your password from a previously verified device.

Note: If you do not have a previously authorized device, please do not make additional attempts to log in. Each new attempt resets the clock and will prolong the delay.

Why am I being asked to verify my identity?

To prevent fraud and to make any account-related changes, Coinbase will ask you to verify your identity from time-to-time. We also ask you to verify your identity to ensure no one but you changes your payment information.

As part of our commitment to remain the most trusted cryptocurrency platform, all Identification Documents must be verified through the Coinbase website or mobile app. We do not accept emailed copies of your identity documents for verification purposes.


What does Coinbase do with my information?

We collect necessary information to allow our customers to use our products and services. This primarily includes data collection that is mandated by law—such as when we must comply with anti money laundering laws, or to verify your identity and protect you from potential fraudulent activity. We may also collect your data to enable certain services, improve our products, and keep you notified of new developments (based on your preferences). We do not, and will not, sell your data to third parties without your consent.

  • Ensure your identification document is in a well lit area without much glare.
  • Photograph the entire document, try to avoid cutting off any corners or sides.
  • If having trouble with the camera on a desktop or laptop computer, try installing our iOS or Android app on your cell phone. You can use the mobile app to complete the ID verification step using your phones camera. The Identity Verification section can be found under Settings in the app.
  • Trying to upload a US passport? At this time, we only accept US state-issued ID such as a Drivers License or Identification Card. We are unable to accept US passports due to the lack of indication of what state you reside in.
  • For customers outside of the US, we are unable to accept scanned or otherwise saved image files at this time. If you do not have a webcam on your computer, the mobile app can be used to complete this step.

Can I send a copy of my document by email instead?
