Can I generate new API keys?
Yes. To generate a new API key, log in and visit the API Management page. Your API keys should only be shared with third-party platforms you trust, as these platforms may have the ability to access your Binance.US transaction history, perform trades, or even withdraw funds on your behalf.
How do I protect my online accounts?
Here are some best practices to keep in mind:
- Managing API Keys. Regularly review your API keys and delete keys that are no longer in use. Every 90 days, we recommend that you consider deleting all existing keys and creating new ones, to ensure you are regularly evaluating the third-party platforms you connect to.
- Set Whitelist Permissions. If you have trusted third-party platforms you want to connect your Binance.US account to, visit their website and check whether they have any ‘Whitelist’ solutions you can enable to allow only approved IP addresses to transact via your account. On Binance.US, you can also save and whitelist approved crypto addresses for withdrawals, using our built-in whitelisting feature.
- Update Your Software. Check to make sure your computer or mobile device has the latest software installed. We also recommend that you regularly review any extensions you’ve installed on your web browser.
- Enable 2-Factor Authentication (2FA). To add an extra layer of security to your online accounts, always enable 2FA if it is available. While we recommend using Google Authenticator as the more secure method, you also have the option to use SMS authentication. If you haven’t done so already, click here to learn how to add a 2FA method on Binance.US.
