Coinbase Pro adds new security and usability features

Today, Coinbase Pro is adding new features designed to make the user experience easier and safer than ever before.

  1. Address Book — an easy way for you to keep track of your frequently used crypto addresses

  2. Crypto Address Whitelisting — designed to restrict crypto transfers to addresses in your Address Book.

We’re committed to being the safest, most trusted and easiest to use platform for trading cryptocurrencies, and these new updates are one more step along this journey.

Address Book

The new Address Book available today to all Pro customers lets users store any number of addresses, making it easier and safer to send crypto to those addresses you know and trust. Users no longer have to do a manual address lookup, copy, and paste each time they want to withdraw crypto. Instead, they can search an address by its nickname or its first few characters and the Address Book will autocomplete the process. Users can save new addresses to their Address Book after withdrawing crypto to a previously unsaved address.

Crypto Address Whitelisting

The new Address Book will also offer optional crypto Address Whitelisting. When a customer enables the feature, sends from the customer’s Coinbase Pro account will be limited to addresses already listed in their Address Book. For additional security, Whitelisting also adds a 48-hour delay to adding new addresses to the your Address Book and disabling the Whitelisting feature.
