Coinbase is one of the largest and most popular cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. But if you've decided to close your account, you may be wondering how to do it.
In this article, we'll provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to close your Coinbase account.
To close your Coinbase account, you need to log in to your account using a web browser.
You can't close your account from the Coinbase mobile app, so make sure you have access to a computer or a mobile browser.
Once you've logged in to your account, click on your profile picture in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
This will open a dropdown menu. From the menu, select "Settings."
On the Settings page, scroll down to the bottom and select "Close Account" in the bottom left-hand corner.
After selecting "Close Account," you'll be asked to confirm your decision.
Coinbase will also remind you that you need to have a zero balance before you can close your account.
If you have any funds remaining in your account, you'll need to transfer them to another Coinbase user, donate them to GiveCrypto.org, or forfeit them.
If you have a dust balance that's too small to cover any fees associated with selling the crypto, you can also choose to forfeit your funds and allow Coinbase to zero out any remaining balances.
Once you've taken care of any remaining funds, you'll be asked to enter your password to confirm the account closure.
After submitting the request, your Coinbase account will be closed.
