Withdrawal address whitelisting is an optional, self-service security feature available to all Gemini customers. You can find the feature and configure whitelisting in your account settings.
Whitelisting ensures that cryptocurrency in your Gemini account can only be sent to known withdrawal addresses. Whitelisting allows you to ban all cryptocurrency withdrawals, or restrict withdrawals to a list of known addresses only. It also allows you to label withdrawal addresses, making them easier to find and identify.
Once you enable whitelisting in your account settings, you’ll be prompted to create and manage your list of known addresses. A number of security restrictions and guidelines will then affect your ability to make withdrawals:
- Once you enable whitelisting, you will not be able to withdraw until there are active addresses on your whitelist. You can leave your whitelist empty to maintain a ban on all withdrawals.
- For individual accounts, every address is subject to a 7-day approval period before it is activated for withdrawals.
- For this reason, you may want to withdraw prior to enabling the feature (and/or add known addresses to your whitelist right away).
- On accounts with multiple users, address requests can only be made by account administrators or managers. Requests are subject to a dual-control process, whereby a fellow administrator or manager must approve each request. (This eliminates the need for the 7-day approval period.)
- As an individual user, you can add addresses, delete addresses, or edit address labels any time through your account settings on the Gemini website.
- To disable whitelisting, you must contact Gemini Customer Support.
Whitelist information is read-only on the Gemini mobile app. Any desired changes must be made through the Gemini web platform.
