Why Do I Need to Re-verify My Binance Account (EEA Countries)
Why do I need to verify my Binance Account from time to time?
Binance requires all users to complete Identity Verification to increase their account security and to comply with countries’ regulations. Therefore, you might be asked to re-verify your Binance account from time to time. For example, we require existing users to perform Identity Verification again after we upgrade our compliance standards to be fully aligned with the latest EU Anti-Money Laundering Directives.
Identity Verification plays an important role in account security. With Identity Verification, Binance can protect your account from potential risks. We have to ensure our identity verification process can keep up to date with the new measures and provide a security framework at a technical level.
Binance also complies with a series of AML (Anti-Money Laundering) standards, risk prevention, compliance, and the operation of certain activities that have been regulated by the jurisdictions. This can prevent money laundering, terrorist financing, and illegal financial crime.
In order to retain access to all Binance products and services, all existing EEA countries’ users need to re-verify their Binance accounts with the new Identity Verification.
We will notify users in batches to perform the new verification. Please note that you will only be able to perform the new verification after receiving the notification email. Follow the instructions in the email to complete Identity Verification. Please complete the verification within the deadline, or your Binance account will be restricted to “Withdrawal Only”.
