Address Book on Coinbase Exchange
The Address Book feature allows users to add and store any number of crypto addresses, making it easier and safer to send crypto to those crypto addresses you know and trust. Users can:
Add a crypto address for any of the cryptocurrencies supported on Coinbase Exchange
Assign a nickname to the address
Easily search for that address by its nickname or its first few characters when withdrawing crypto—the Address Book will autocomplete the process
Save new addresses to the Address Book after withdrawing crypto to an unknown address

Whitelisting on Exchange, an optional security feature
Whitelisting is a security feature in the Address Book that allows crypto withdrawals to only go to addresses (external or Coinbase) already designated in your Address Book. Requiring 2-factor authentication to enable/disable the feature, Whitelisting allows users to more safely withdraw to verified addresses. Users can:
Enable or disable this feature within the Address Book on Coinbase Exchange
Continue to add new addresses to the Address Book (requires a 48-hour hold period)
Withdraw crypto only to addresses saved in the Address Book (with Whitelisting enabled)
