  • Sub-accounts will inherit the tier level of the main account at the time of creation and will update daily according to the main account.

  • General users (Lv1 - Lv5) can create up to 5 sub-accounts. Other users can view their tier permissions.

  • Sub-accounts can only be created on the web.

You can log in to your sub-accounts using the sub-account name and password on the OKX Web and App login pages. Alternatively, you can log in to your OKX main account and navigate to the Sub-accounts page to enable 'Switchable' for the sub-account, allowing you to switch accounts under your profile.
