Why Am I Getting an Email From Coinbase?

If you’re a Coinbase user, you may have noticed an email in your inbox from the company with the subject line “Why am I getting an email from Coinbase?” The email goes on to say “You’re receiving this because you’ve signed up for notifications from us.”

So why are you getting this email?

It turns out that Coinbase has started requiring all users to verify their identity with the company. This means that you’ll need to provide some personal information, such as your name, date of birth, and address.

NOTE: WARNING: If you receive an email from Coinbase, it is important to be aware that it may not be legitimate. While Coinbase may occasionally send emails to its customers, any email that asks you to provide personal information or contains links to a website should be treated with caution. Do not click on any links in the email, and do not provide any personal information. Instead, contact Coinbase directly if you believe this email may be legitimate.

The company is doing this in order to comply with new anti-money laundering regulations. By verifying your identity, Coinbase can make sure that it’s not being used for illegal activity.

If you’re not comfortable providing this information to Coinbase, you can always close your account. However, if you do choose to verify your identity, you’ll be able to continue using the service and keeping your bitcoins safe.
