When checking your wallet address from your primary account page, you may have noticed that the address currently displayed differs from one you have seen listed in the past.
<p>There is no need to be alarmed by this. In fact, we automatically generate a new address for you after every transaction you make or when funds are moved between your wallet and our <a href="https://www.coinbase.com/security" target="_blank">cold-storage system</a>. This is done to protect your privacy, so that a third-party can not view all other transactions associated with your account simply by using a <a href="https://blockr.io/" target="_blank">blockchain explorer</a> to look-up an address they know to be yours. </p>
<p>All addresses that have been generated for your account will remain associated with your account forever. They are safe to re-use to receive future payments, but for the prior stated reasons, we recommend using a unique address for all transactions. You can view your complete list of wallet addresses at any time <a href="https://www.coinbase.com/addresses" target="_blank">here</a>.</p>
