Address Screening Guide

Q: How do you monitor actors for illicit activity?

We receive and analyze blockchain intelligence provided by TRM Labs. TRM Labs combines on-chain data and real-world investigations to identify financial crime and other harmful activities. We intend to only block wallets that are owned or associated with clearly illegal behavior like: sanctions, terrorism financing, hacked or stolen funds, ransomware, human trafficking, and child sexual abuse material (CSAM).

 

Q: Why are you doing this?

Uniswap Labs’ policy is to prevent people engaged in illegal behavior from using our App. We remain committed to developing products in a way that provides a safe, transparent, and robust financial infrastructure that can empower users around the world.

 

Q: Why was my wallet blocked?

If your wallet has been blocked in the Uniswap App, then it has been flagged with a strong likelihood of being owned or linked to illicit activity.

 

Q: My wallet was blocked from using the App and I believe this is a mistake. How do I get unblocked?

We do not anticipate many errors, but they are always possible. Please email compliance@uniswap.org to enquire about the process to have your wallet address unblocked.

 

Please note that we do not control TRM Labs or their independent determinations about risk categories and wallet addresses. Please also note that their determinations, or ours, are not being reported to law enforcement.

 

Q: Are your data collection and data privacy practices changing?

No, our data practices are not changing. We will continue to log addresses that use the App, but we will not collect any additional data. Our Terms of Service is the most definitive source on this.
