Announcing IP Whitelisting for API Keys

We’re happy to announce an important security update for GDAX API traders that allows IP address whitelisting for API keys. This feature ensures that your API credentials can only be used from an approved IP address. That means even if your API credentials are lost or compromised — they are never usable on a non-whitelisted server.

Starting today, all customers can easily scope an API key to an IP address. We recommend any customer using the GDAX API to take the following steps to protect your account:

  • Log into GDAX and navigate to API Settings
  • Delete existing API keys
  • Create new API keys specifying your IP address in the “IP Whitelist” field
