Username requirements and recommendations

These guidelines are designed to help you create a secure and private username for your Kraken account.

Note: once created, the username cannot be changed.

Username requirements

  • Minimum length is 5 characters, maximum is 32.
  • Can only contain letters, numbers, dashes (-), periods (.), and underscores (_).
  • Cannot begin with "Kraken".

Username recommendations

  • Longer usernames are better.
  • Do not make it something common, obvious, or easy to guess.
  • Do not make it similar to what you use on other websites.
  • Do not make it similar to your email address.

Never share your username with anyone. When discussing your account, even with Kraken Support, only use the Public Account ID.
