Allowlist enhances the security of your withdrawal. With this feature enabled, you can only withdraw to addresses saved in your address book. To add a new address, simply add it to your address book prior to withdrawing.
If your account is compromised, the extra layer of protection will prevent you from withdrawing funds to any unauthorized addresses.

  2. Select the crypto you would like to withdraw > On-chain

  3. You can either enter the address or select the address in your address book. If there is no address available, you can select Add address
