Why does Coinbase keep asking me to verify?
Why am I being asked to verify my identity? To prevent fraud and to make any account-related changes, Coinbase will ask you to verify your identity from time-to-time. We also ask you to verify your identity to ensure no one but you changes your payment information.
Is verifying ID on Coinbase safe?
