Creating an API allows you to connect to Binance’s servers via several programming languages. Data can be pulled from Binance and interacted with in external applications. You can view your current wallet and transaction data, make trades, and deposit and withdraw funds in third-party programs.
Creating an API is a simple process that can be completed in just 5 minutes.

How to create your own Binance API Key?
1. After logging into your Binance account, click the [User Center] icon and select [API Management] from the drop-down menu.
2. Then click [Create API].
Security tip: Before creating an API Key, you need to enable two-factor authentication (2FA) on your account.
3. Select your preferred API Key type.
Note: For more information about Self-generated API Key, please refer to the step-by-step tutorial on How to Generate an RSA Key Pair to Send API Requests on Binance.
4. Enter a label/name for your API Key.
5. Complete the security verification with your registered 2FA devices.
6. Your API Key is now created.
Do not disclose your API Key, Secret Key (HMAC), or Private Key (RSA) to anyone to avoid asset losses. You should treat them like your passwords. If you forget your Secret Key, you will need to delete the API and create a new one.
Please take note of the IP access restrictions. We recommend choosing [Restrict access to trusted IPs only] for security reasons.
To remain compliant with the latest industry requirements, Binance has updated its API services. Effective from 2021-08-09 03:00 (UTC), only users who have completed [Verified Plus] can create new API keys. Binance has deactivated any existing API Keys created by accounts that have only completed the [Verified] verification after 2021-08-23 00:00 (UTC). For more information, please refer to the announcement.
Effective from 2023-01-30 00:00 (UTC), if your IP is unrestricted, the system-generated API Key cannot allow any permission other than [Enable Reading].
