Next, you will see a screen similar to the one below. When this screen appears, the letters and numbers that you see are your secret key. Please write this down and store it in a secure place. You will need this if you lose or replace your phone, or accidentally uninstall Google Authenticator. Once you have saved the 2-step secret key, please click on the Next button to continue.
Download the Google Authenticator App on your phone.
IOS users should search for “Google Authenticator” in the App Store.
Android users should search for “Google Authenticator” in Google Play.
Open the Google Authenticator app on your phone. You have two options:
Scan the QR code with your phone, and it will set up the Google Authenticator for KuCoin and start generating the 6-digit codes for you.
Once the Google Authenticator and your KuCoin account are bound, you will receive a unique 6-digit code to access your account. The code is valid for one use and will be changed every 30 seconds. Below is a sample of what the code will look like on your phone.
Used for the verification in transaction, withdrawal, API creation, etc. Please ensure the strength of the password and well keep it.
Go back to Security settings and click on set next to Trading password.
Performing the security verification process: if your account is already bound with Google 2-step authenticator (Google 2FA) and a mobile phone number, you can select either one for verification. Take Google 2FA Verification as an example: Open the Google 2-step authenticator on your device, enter the Google Verification Code and click Next.
After you pass the 2-step verification, you are available to set the trading password. Fill in the trading password digit code and click “Confirm” to complete setting.
KYC (Know Your Customer)
To avoid conditions such as forgetting access credentials to exchange and accounts being taken over by others (information leakage from client side), we strongly suggest you to complete the KYC verification. Through the KYC information, we could help recover your account more quickly.
Please go to “KYC verification”–“Individual Account Verification” to complete your KYC.
The process for KYC verification consists of three steps. Please confirm your information is true and valid, otherwise it will affect your audit result.
Please note that the areas highlighted with “*” are required. Your information can be modified before submission for review. Once the submission is successful, the information can be viewed, but it cannot be modified again until the review result is published.
Tip: Please be aware that the update will enable one ID to be eligible for a maximum of 3 KuCoin accounts only. For identity information that is currently associated with more than three accounts, we will retain the KYC verification status for the three accounts with the highest account balance.
If you use the same KYC information for more than three accounts and the balances of the additional accounts are not within your top three, the KYC status of these accounts will become unverified. Please rest assured that functionality such as deposits, withdrawal, and trading will remain accessible in accordance with non-KYC verified account rules.
