The proof is in our platform.
Here’s why you can trust us:
In April 2021, Coinbase became the largest public crypto company. That means we operate with more financial transparency: we publish financial statements quarterly and we’re audited annually by an independent third-party as required by law.
Your crypto is your crypto. It’s that simple. Coinbase doesn't lend or take any action with your assets without your permission. Also, we offer the most secure and multifaceted risk management programs designed to protect our customers' assets.
We only collect the necessary personal data in order to provide you with the best protection and services we can – and are transparent in how we use it and why we share it.
The technology that powers our platform was developed with industry-leading security and encryption at its core. Our security team is constantly working to make sure you and your assets are protected from emerging threats.
From auto-enrolled 2 factor-authentication (with security key support), password protection, to multi-approval withdrawals in Coinbase Vault, we provide powerful security features to all our users.
You can always contact our support team by phone or messaging to speak with our virtual assistant, or depending on the hours, with a real live support agent. You can also check out our Help Center for quick solutions to common problems.
