Reset my password

Coinbase takes precautions to safeguard against unauthorized requests for password resets, which in some cases may include prohibiting crypto sends for up to 48 hours after a password has been reset. 

To minimize the potential for restrictions, reset your password from a device and location (IP address) you’ve previously used to access Coinbase.
