Account Restrictions

Control Person

If you declare yourself as a control person for a company, you are typically blocked from trading that stock. In your Robinhood brokerage account, you will notice that we have blocked your ability to trade that symbol for compliance reasons.

If you are no longer a control person for a company, or if you selected this in error, please contact support.

Restrictions may be placed on your account for other reasons. Some of these reasons include:

  • Transfer Reversals
  • Incorrect or Outdated Information
  • Fraud Inquiries
  • Account Levies
Keep in mind

If you have a restriction placed on your Robinhood Financial account that prevents you from buying stocks, you will also be prevented from buying cryptocurrencies with your Robinhood Crypto account until the restriction is lifted.

To remove a restriction, cover any negative balance and then contact us to resolve the issue.
