Request and register a YubiKey on Coinbase Prime


You and your designated teammates are required to use a YubiKey (or other physical security key) to secure your Coinbase Prime account.

YubiKey is the most secure 2-step verification method as this requires an attacker to gain physical possession of your security key to access your digital information.  You need it to:

  • Sign in to your Prime account

  • Initiate and approve activities on Prime, such as withdrawals, transfers, update settings and user permissions

Note: Trading doesn’t require 2-step verification with a physical security key. 

Check out the video and review the sections below to learn how to request and register a YubiKey on Coinbase Prime.


During the business application process, you can request to have a YubiKey sent to you and your teammates. You’ll need the following information:

You'll receive your YubiKey shortly after you're approved for Coinbase Prime.

Note: You can use your own existing YubiKey or a different brand of physical security key.
