1. Enter your CoinJar's email address and password
Visit CoinJar, or open the CoinJar Touch app, and enter your email and password to begin the sign in process.
Resetting your CoinJar password
If you no longer have access to your Coinjar's password, you can select 'Trouble signing in?' on the CoinJar sign in page to request a new password reset email. If you don't receiving these reset instructions in your inbox within a few minutes, please ensure they aren't being redirected to your email address's spam/junk folder.
Please note that CoinJar passwords are encrypted, and cannot be recovered if lost. Resetting your password is the only way to regain access to your account, and is a quick fix if you still have access to your CoinJar's email address.
Updating your CoinJar's email address
If you no longer have access to your CoinJar's email address, please email CoinJar Support for assistance. You will be required to provide further verification details in order to have your CoinJar's email address manually updated.
2. Approve your sign in
If this is the first time you're signing in on this particular browser, you'll be sent a new sign in approval email to your CoinJar's email address. This is a simple additional security step that allows you to approve access to your CoinJar using this web browser.
- You'll be sent an email called 'Approve your recent CoinJar sign in'. If this is not showing up in your inbox, please check your junk/spam folder.
- Provided you're confident the details of the person signing in match your own, select the orange 'Approve this sign in' button at the bottom of the email. You do not need to reset your password.
- With the browser now approved, you will be redirected back to sign in with your email address and password one final time.
You must approve your sign in on the same device you're using to sign in to your CoinJar.
How sign in approval works
CoinJar stores data within your browser's cache to keep track of where you're signing in. So if you begin signing in using one browser, you'll have to approve the sign in and return to that same browser to proceed. If you change browsers at any stage, you'll be sent a new sign in approval email.
Private browsing mode
If your browser is set to 'private' browsing mode, or 'incognito', CoinJar will not be able to store data within the browser. This will cause your sign in approval to fail, because CoinJar will recognise it as a new browser each time you try to sign in.
Web view / "popup" browser window
Depending on what mail app you're using, when you select the orange 'Approve this sign in' button it may bring up its own popup browser window. This can cause your sign in approval to fail, since this new browser window may not share the same cached data as your actual browser app. On iOS in particular, it will come down to whether the developer enabled this.
In this case, press and hold the orange 'Approve this sign in' button within the sign in approval email to copy the approval link. Switch back to the browser you began signing in on, and then paste the link directly into the URL bar to finish this process.
3. Authenticate with Enhanced Security
If you have Enhanced Security enabled on your CoinJar, you'll be asked to authenticate using one of your Enhanced Security authenticators. You can also choose to 'Remember this browser for 2 weeks', which will allow you to sign in on this device/browser without providing authentication for the next 14 days.
If your Enhanced Security authenticator is not providing a correct code
Please refer to our article Troubleshooting Enhanced Security for tips on how to resolve issues related to Enhanced Security codes.
If you're prompted for an authenticator you cannot access
If you have at least one of your Enhanced Security authenticators, you'll be able to select 'More options' to choose any of your active authenticators to be able to sign in. Once signed in, you can visit your CoinJar's Settings to remove any inactive authenticators.
If you no longer have the ability to provide codes from any of the Enhanced Security authenticators you've added, you will need to remove Enhanced Security from your CoinJar by submitting a new Enhanced Security Removal Request.
If the CoinJar website will not load
If you're using an ad blocker, or some other browser plugin that would prevent Google Analytics from operating normally, you may receive a Cloudfront error page or a completely blank screen. Please try disabling your browser plugin or adding CoinJar to the plugin's whitelist. Using an alternative web browser or device should also allow you to sign in if this is the case.
Still can't access your account?
If none of the tips above are helping you to access your CoinJar, please email CoinJar Support for assistance. To expedite this process, please include screenshots of the page you're getting stuck on, and a description of the steps you've taken so far.
