Withdrawals security changes

In an effort to make everyone’s account more secure, we have modified the rules allowing a withdrawal to be automatically approved.
Withdrawals will now be automatically approved if:

  • SMS 2fa enabled
  • 2FA or clef enabled for at least the last 5 days
  • IP Whitelist is used, or all crypto/tether withdrawal addresses are locked, for at least the last 5 days

If your account does not satisfy these requirements, you will receive a confirmation email and will have to follow its link to approve your withdrawals.

In both case once approved a withdrawal will be processed automatically as before.

These rules apply to withdrawals made by API as well.

We hope you will appreciate those measures made in an effort to make your funds as safe as possible.

Best regards,

The Bitfinex team
