Withdrawal address allowlisting is an optional, self-service security feature available to all BlockFi clients. You can find and configure allowlisting in your account settings here: https://app.blockfi.com/settings/crypto-addresses
Allowlisting ensures that cryptocurrency in your BlockFi account can only be sent to known withdrawal addresses. Allowlisting 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 allowlisting 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 allowlisting, you will not be able to withdraw until there are active addresses on your allowlist. You can leave your allowlist empty to maintain a ban on all withdrawals.
- Every address is subject to a 7-day approval period before it is activated for withdrawals. For this reason, you may want to add known addresses to your allowlist right away.
- As an individual client, you can add or delete addresses any time through your account settings on the BlockFi website.
Allowlist information is read-only on the BlockFi mobile app. Any desired changes must be made through the BlockFi web platform.
