Emails from Coinbase aren't reaching you

    • A quick Google search for "how to check my spam settings" should show you how to change these settings. Be sure to add your specific email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.) in your search.

  • Review all of your folders, filters, and labels (e.g., Gmail's Social and Promotional labels/tabs) in case the email was moved out of the inbox.

  • Search for "" in your email provider's search function, which should locate all emails from us, even if they've been directed to other folders.

  • Search for "New Device Confirmation" in the subject line if it's a device confirmation email you're expecting.

  • Add to your contacts list and the Safe Senders list in your email settings (if applicable).

  • Contact your email provider to find out what's happening to incoming emails from There may be an issue that needs to be sorted out with the provider.
