The Binance.US API is available to users who have completed basic verification. There are two different ways to access the Binance.US API. If you have programming experience, you can visit the Binance.US API Documentation Portal. If you do not have programming experience and simply wish to generate an API key that will allow you to connect your Binance.US account with a trusted third-party platform, please carefully review these important best practices and safety tips before creating a key using the API Management feature.

How to access the Binance.US API (for customers with no programming experience)
If you do not have programming experience and wish to conduct API trading using a trusted trading bot or third party integration, you can follow these steps to retrieve your Binance.US API Key, which will allow you to connect your Binance.US account with your third party API trading platform of choice.
Always remember that your API Keys should only be shared with third-party platforms you trust, as these platforms may have the ability to access Binance.US transaction history, perform trades or even withdraw funds on your behalf. Before you create an API Key, we strongly recommend that you review our API key best practices and safety tips.
Here’s how to retrieve your API Key:
1. Log in to your Binance.US account.
2. On the upper navigation menu, click API Management on the dropdown menu that appears when you hover over your email.
Please note you must complete Basic Verification to access the API Management feature.
3. Enter a label for your API Key. Your label should be as descriptive as possible, so you can return to the API Management feature and easily locate and manage your API Keys.
4. Complete 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) to proceed and confirm the confirmation email. To access the Create API feature, you may need to verify both your chosen 2FA method (SMS or Google Authenticator) and email.
5. View your API Key and click copy or scan the QR code to copy your public API Key. For your security, your API Secret Key will only be displayed at the time it is created.
If you lose this key, you will need to delete your API and set up a new one. Please carefully review the API restrictions sections and only grant API Key access to trusted entities. By default, the API restrictions are set to Can Read, which allows trusted entities to access your transaction history.
If you enable Spot Trading or Withdrawals, then the entity that has your API Key can initiate trading or withdrawal funds without your express permission, as permission is granted the moment you share your API Key.
Finally, you can also configure your IP access restrictions to trusted IPs that you have previously accessed Binance.US from.
