As the registrant of your exchange account, you are automatically your account’s administrator. The administrator has the ability to add (or remove) additional users. When you create an additional user, you are giving that user access to your account. Upon user creation, you must set the permissions granted to that user. Each user should have their own account so permissions can be granted separately for each person.
Setting the scope determines which account you’re granting access to. “Master” is the equivalent of all your accounts. Most users have a “Primary” account by default as their only account. In the event that you have just one account, you will not see a “scope” dropdown. Once you have multiple accounts, you may also grant access to just one account by selecting that account name from the list. For users with two or more accounts, those accounts will have unique, user-generated names; users can select any account from the drop down upon API Key creation.
The Master scope gives the user granted access via the key the ability to create new accounts, transfer funds or view balances, trade or transfer funds on behalf of any of your accounts.
Selecting any other account name will give the user the ability to view account balances, trade, or transfer funds for that specific account. For users with only one account, this account will be titled “Primary” in most cases.
To add another user, follow the steps below:
- Go to the Manage Users page.
- Enter the email address of the new user (you will need to use an email address that is not currently in use with Gemini) and select the account level (for an explanation of account levels, read this article).
- Click “Add User” and enter your Authy (2FA) code when prompted.
- Your new user will receive an email with the subject line “Gemini - Complete Your Gemini Registration” with instructions to complete registering.
Please note that this feature is only available on the Gemini website.
