Kraken provides a security feature called the Global Settings Lock (GSL). It is a security feature that:
- 1Prevents changes from being made to your Kraken account.
- 2Hides sensitive account information.
Before setting up a GSL, be sure to create a Master Key in case you change your mind. A Master Key has the ability to turn the GSL off at any time. Kraken support is unable to expedite the GSL unlock process.
Note: While the Master Key override option can be convenient, it comes with an increased security risk if your Master Key is compromised.
