How to Connect Your Kraken Account to Passiv

Go to the Settings page where you’ll find your Connections box. You can find and edit each connection here. The Connections Settings enable you to:

  • Choose the level of access for each of your accounts. If you’re an Elite user, you can enable trade access to take advantage of One-Click Trades. One-Click Trades allow you to place your trades directly from Passiv at the click of a button instead of having to login to your brokerage to place the recommended trades.
  • Add account connections. This feature allows you to be able to link multiple accounts seamlessly. For example, you may want to manage your spouse’s or childrens’ accounts as part of your portfolio and be able to track the performance of your entire family’s wealth. You can also connect accounts from multiple brokerages if you have investments with multiple brokerages we support.

Here is an example of the connections box:

Your Passiv account will now be linked to Kraken. Congratulations, and happy investing!
