Additional information verification

If you received a message saying your account is locked or under review, or an email from Coinbase asking for additional information to verify your account, you've come to the right place! 

Why does Coinbase need this information? 

We ask for this information as a security measure to ensure our customers have a safe and secure experience—it helps prevent fraud and increases account security. 

How do I provide the requested information?

If we requested any documents, please upload them through the secure SendSafely link provided in the email.

For all other requested information, simply reply to the original email with your answers—be as complete and thorough as possible. 

If you have questions about ID verification, please see this Help Article

What happens next? 

Once you've provided the requested info, we'll review your account to make sure everything looks good. These reviews usually take around 5-7 days, but can take longer. We'll reach out as soon as we have an update. 

After the review is complete, if we've determined that your account has all of the correct and required information, we'll remove the account restrictions. 

 

Coinbase takes extensive security measures to ensure that your personal information is safe. Please refer to our privacy policy for more information.
