Coinbase Account Recovery
Complete the following steps to recover your account.
PHONE NUMBER

ID VERIFICATION

OVERVIEW
To regain access to your account, please change your phone number. This process may take 48-72 hours. You will need:

1. Your old phone number (you don't need access to it)
2. Your new phone number (you must be able to receive SMS on it)
3. An approved and valid form of ID
4. Access to a computer with webcam to take a picture of yourself

You notice number 4? They want a picture of you.

You ever change your cell phone number, they got you!

Sounds reasonable. I don't care if I have $5 or $500K in it, I want to make sure someone can't easily hijack the account. Almost surprised that's all they ask for.

Unless they've changed on registration, they don't ask for your picture when you first register.

That's a lot of security checks. Can understand why?

Maybe they just want to check it's you. Money laundering is a bad thing.
