How to create API keys

Before creating API keys make sure to verify your identity. The use of API is restricted to verified users in accordance with the terms of use.

  • Log in to your Binance account and go to the API Management page:

Click on the "Account" icon in the top-right corner of the screen and select "API Management" from the drop-down menu.

Binance does not allow trading using API keys configured as "Unrestricted-IP-Access" on accounts with "Default Security Controls" enabled (which is the default setting). To trade in TabTrader, using HMAC API keys with unrestricted IP access, you will need to disable the Default Security Controls. To do this, please go to API management on your Binance account (on the website) and uncheck the box.
If you use mobile applications and would like to set IP restrictions for the API keys, you can whitelist your own static device’s IP.

Click on the "Create API" button to create a new set of API keys.
