This article is for clients using the Kraken Classic interface.

If you make any changes to your password and don’t have either Sign-in 2FA or a Master Key enabled, withdrawals to new withdrawal addresses will be held for 24 hours for security purposes. Withdrawal addresses already added to your account won’t be affected.
In order to withdraw to a new cryptocurrency address ("Account" for EOS) from your Kraken account, you must first add and confirm it. Here is how to do that:

    Enter a unique "Label" for the address (e.g. “Mum's Bitcoin savings”, “My BTC address”, etc.) to help you remember what the address is used for.Note: all withdrawal addresses and address descriptions on your account must have a unique label. You cannot use the same label even if it is for two different cryptocurrencies.
