  • How to Change Your Email Address

    You can now change your email address on the Settings page by following these steps: 

    1. Go to your Settings page from your account icon in the upper right hand corner.
    2. Underneath the Account settings header, click on “Change Email”.
    3. A pop-up window will appear, where you can click “Continue”.
    4. You'll be directed to enter a validation code from your phone, either via SMS or your 2FA verification. 
    5. You'll now need to type in the email address you'd like to associate with your Paxful account, then click “Verify Email”.
    6. Go to your email inbox and copy the code we send you.
    7. Verify your email address by inputting the code when prompted. 

    After setting up the new email associated with your Paxful account, you'll see a pop-up window that will confirm the change.

    Here are a few things to keep in mind: 

    • It may take up to 24 hours for our system to complete the change of your account’s email address. 
    • If you’re using 2FA, you will receive a validation code through either Google Authenticator or Authy. 
    • You *must* be able to verify the new email address. If you're unable to, you won't be able to change your email to that specific address. 
    • You are only able to change your email address **3** times.

    For your security, some email address change requests need to be reviewed by our support team. If you are unable to change your email address through the steps above, you can reach out to us through the contact form. For more information on how to use this form, check out this article.

    Once our support team receives your request, we’ll ask you a few questions to make sure you’re the owner of your Paxful account. From there, our team will take a look at processing your request.



  • 2要素認証の問題解決

    SMS経由の2要素認証(2FA)コードの受信に問題がある場合やGoogle Authenticator(GA)の2要素認証コードが機能しない場合、問題解決に関する次のヒントをお試しください。

    Google Authenticator and Authy

    Google Authenticatorのコードが機能しない場合、Google Authenticatorアプリの時間がお使いの端末と正常に同期できていない可能性があります。 端末の時計を確認し、正しいタイムゾーンに設定してください。 時計が狂っていると、コードの同期がずれる可能性があります。



    • 2要素認証コードが生成されたときに端末の電源が入っていることを確認してください。
    • 2要素認証コードが生成されたときに端末に十分に電波が届いていることを確認してください。 
    • 端末が家庭用ネットワークに接続されており、ローミング中でないことを確認してください。当社のSMS提供会社はローミング中の端末へのSMS配信を保証していません。
    • 端末のSMSの受信ボックスがいっぱいになっていないことを確認してください。

    注意: SMSの2要素認証を何度か生成しようとしてもコードが届かなかった場合、当社のシステムがコードの送信をやめている可能性があります。 その場合は24時間待ってからもう一度SMSの2要素認証コードを生成してみてください。 それでもSMSの2要素認証コードを受信できない場合は、ネットワーク提供会社に連絡して当社からのSMSメッセージがブロックされていないかどうかを確認してください。

    See our article on how to set 2FA with Google Authenticator or Authy. また、アカウントを保護する方法に関するヒントについてはセキュリティガイドを確認してください。


  • Restoring Access to 2FA

    Having 2FA set on your account significantly improves the security level of your cryptocurrency wallet. However, sometimes you may lose access to your 2FA due to any of the following reasons:

    • スマートフォンを紛失した、またはスマートフォンが壊れた。
    • 認証アプリを削除した。
    • 機種変更したが、すべてのコードを含むアプリを新しい端末に移行できなかった。
    • 電話番号が変わった。

    If this happens, click "Trouble logging in?" when you're asked to enter in your 2FA code. From there, we'll ask you some questions and we'll see how we can help.

  • How to Stay Safe on Paxful

    Safety is a big priority for us at Paxful, so we’ve put together this list of tips and tricks to help keep your account safe.

    Protect yourself in the trade

    1. Stay in the trade chat if you can.

        • Although there are times where you might need to exit the chat to finish the trade, try not clicking on suspicious links that you aren’t familiar with, especially phishing links.
        • Be cautious of users asking you to cancel a trade and to switch over to a different offer link. Keep an eye out for users that are not following offer guidelines. 
        • Don’t chat outside of Paxful’s trade chat. If your trade ends up in a dispute, our team can’t fully help to resolve the issue since it happened outside of Paxful.
        • Check that your address bar is "" before entering your account details.

    2. Don't share your personal information. 

        • Don’t share contact or personal information in the trade chat—users can try to scam you on off-site trades, impersonate you, or show that you traded with them off-escrow.

    3. Identify real Paxful moderators.

        • It’s important to know that our moderators have specific chat bubbles and signatures to let you know that it’s really us. Here’s what a real Paxful moderator message will look like:


    Protecting your Paxful account

    1. Two-factor authentication

        • We highly recommend setting up 2FA as soon as you create your Paxful account. You can set this up in your account settings. We love using Authy or Google Authenticator, but you can also use SMS. SMS can be a bit more risky since there are tactics (such as SIM swapping) to get a hold of someone’s SMS messages, and receiving SMS depends on your network and region.

    2. Security questions

        • It’s best to set your questions up when you create your Paxful account, but you can set them up at any time in your account settings. Be sure to pick questions and answers that you won’t forget!

    3. Active sessions

        • We recommend frequently checking out the devices you’re currently logged in to your Paxful account on. You can check this in the security tab of your Paxful account. If you don’t recognize a device, use the “x” on the page to log your Paxful account out of that device. We’d also recommend changing your password if this happens, too. 

    Protection measures outside of your Paxful account

    Even when you’re not logged in and actively using your Paxful account, it’s important to keep your account and systems safe. 

    1. Email and passwords

        • Creating passwords. When creating a password, be sure to use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters. 
        • Don’t use the same password. It’s super important to have different passwords for your email and your Paxful account. This is because hackers usually target your emails. In the worst-case scenario, if a hacker gains access to your email, they’ll be able to access the funds in your Paxful wallet. 
        • Never share your password. Be cautious of users asking for sensitive information like your password in a trade chat. The Paxful team will NEVER ask for your password or other sensitive account information. If you’re in a trade dispute and you’re asked by our moderators to provide a screenshot or a video as proof, make sure your passwords are not visible.
        • Protect your email address. Make sure you protect the email address connected to your Paxful account and don’t share it in a trade chat. Your email is a gateway to your Paxful account so be sure to keep it to yourself!
        • Be cautious of SMS messages and emails from unfamiliar senders:
          • Paxful only sends you SMS with security codes related to 2FA and phone verification.
          • Don’t interact with suspicious emails. It’s best to not open emails that look suspicious to you. 
          • Don’t give away sensitive data or click on suspicious links. For additional info, see: I received a suspicious email. Is it from Paxful?

    2. Computer health checklist 

        • Keep your systems up to date. This includes your computer, browser, and any softwares or programs.
        • Don’t download anything unnecessary. In addition to this, if you don’t know the developer or you’re not sure if you trust it, don’t download the software or program. 
        • Use officially licensed softwares. Make sure you’re using softwares that are trusted and licensed. Remember to keep these programs up to date, too. This includes antivirus, anti-malware, personal firewall programs, etc.

    3. Use secure networks

        • Make sure you’re using trusted and secure Wi-Fi and networks. Ideally, use a wired connection or a network with a password.

    Here are some great tips on how to keep your cryptocurrency safe when trading in the Paxful marketplace.

  • Setting Security Questions

    秘密の質問は、Paxfulのアカウントを保護するうえで重要な役割を果たします。 秘密の質問は、アクセスできなくなった自分のアカウントを復元するのに役立ちます。 秘密の質問を設定するには、以下の手順に従ってください。

    1. Paxfulアカウントにログインし、ページ右上にあるユーザー名の上にマウスを移動して「設定」をクリックします。
    2. ページ左側のメニューで「秘密の質問を設定する」をクリックします。

    3. 「回答を設定」リンクをクリックします。
    4. ドロップダウンリストから3つの秘密の質問を選択します。 質問の下にあるフィールドに対応する回答を入力します。

    警告:回答をよく確認し、それを覚えるようにしてください。 必要に応じて、これらの質問に対する回答をフィールドに入力したとおりに提供しなければなりません。 回答を忘れてしまった場合、アカウントへのアクセスを復旧する手順はさらに複雑になります。

    ヒント:秘密の質問の回答を選ぶ際は、あなたのソーシャルメディアプロフィールで見つからない情報を使用することを検討してください。 例えば、「学生時代の親友は誰でしたか?」という質問への回答には、その人の名前ではなくニックネームを使用することを検討します。

     5. 保存」をクリックします。
    秘密の質問が設定されます。 その後、アカウント設定ページに遷移します。


  • What Should I Do if Someone Logged Into My Account?




      1. Usually, whenever there is a new or unexpected login on your account, we immediately notify you via email with a link to report to lock your account if you suspect intrusion. So just click the link in the email. Your account is locked immediately and all sessions are terminated. The faster you act, the higher the chances of saving your BTC. Next, contact support to restore access to your account. After, take steps to protect your account
      2. Alternatively, while logged in to your account, simply proceed with the following steps.


    1. パスワードを安全なもの(他のサイトやメールアドレスに使用していないパスワード)に変更してください。可能な限り複雑なパスワードを作成しつつ、それを記憶するようにしてください。
    2. メールアドレスや電話番号などの他の設定が変更されていないことを確かめてください。それらが覚えのないものに変更されていた場合は、元に戻してください。
    3. Go to your active sessions (Settings > Security > Active Sessions) and log out all sessions by clicking the Close icon next to them.
    4. アカウントからログアウトします。
    5. 新しいパスワードを使用し、ログインし直します。
    6. Download Google Authenticator(iPhone/Android) or Authy (Mac/Windows).
    7. Paxfulで2要素認証を有効化し、お使いのスマートフォンでコードをスキャンします。取引の安全性をさらに高めるため、ログイン時と送金時の両方で確実に2要素認証を有効化してください。SMS経由の2要素認証ではなく、Google AuthenticatorAuthyを使用することをお勧めします。Google Authenticatorのほうがより安全であるためです。ログインやビットコインの送金時に毎回アプリを開くだけです。
    8. 秘密の質問を設定し、それをどこかに書き留めてください。この情報は、スマートフォンを紛失して2要素認証をリセットする必要が生じた場合に必要になります。


    • If the support team can trace the hacker and recover any funds, we will contact you. Hackers often cover their actions very well and it is not possible to track them down to reverse cryptocurrency transactions.
    • 現在あなたがオンライン上で所有する他のアカウントのパスワードを変更することをお勧めします。ハッカーは通常、メールや他のアカウントに侵入することでアクセスを取得するからです。


    1. Contact support and provide all the information required by our support agents. Once it’s verified that you are the account owner, inform support that you need an ACCOUNT LOCKDOWN. Support Team will see if there is enough data to prove you are not a hacker (and will try to give you access to your own account). Once it is verified that you are the victim and rightful account owner, account access will be restored.
    2. Once you log in, secure your account immediately.


    問題の再発を防止するため、複数のウェブサイトで同じパスワードを使用せず、Google Authenticator経由の2要素認証を有効化することをお勧めします。


    So where did the cryptocurrency go?

    • Check your account activity to see who logged into your account. Take note of their IP address.
    • Check your wallet ledger to see the cryptocurrency address they sent your coins to.

    With the cryptocurrency address and the IP address of the thief, you have some information but it is often impossible to track them down. Our support team does not have the resources to help you investigate further because hackers often use VPNs and also due to the general anonymity of cryptocurrency. It is nearly impossible to track them down, so try your best to make your account as secure as possible.

  • I Received a Suspicious Email or Link. Is it from Paxful?

    If you received a suspicious link, email, or message that looks like it’s from us or an entity claiming to be associated with us,  please report such links or emails to our Support team.

    We recommend that you do not click any sent links that look suspicious or click on any links in suspicious emails. We also advise that you do not download any attachments included in such emails or messages, and we recommend that you do not reply to these messages.
