Security key restrictions

Coinbase's mobile apps do not support security keys.

If a security key is activated on your account, you will not be allowed to sign in using Coinbase iOS or Android apps. We hope to support security keys on mobile applications in the future. However, you can use Coinbase in your mobile browsers.

  • If you set up a security key, you'll be able to sign in using selected web applications. Please note, many mobile browsers do not support security keys and support depends on the browser and version
  • Check with your security key manufacturer to ensure they support mobile and check with your browser developer to find out if they support WebAuthN / Fido2 standard security keys. Third party applications may have restricted functionality

If you setup a security key, you can sign in to the 3rd-party apps using your Coinbase account, but you cannot perform any actions that require 2-step verification after sign-in. Please contact your 3rd-party application developers to find out more about future support.
