Geezer newbie respons to your tragedy

First, I am indeed saddened and horrified at what you have experienced. No one deserves that. We don't know whether it was a huge amount or a small amount. Nevertheless, it was yours and no one had the right to take it from you. On 1 January 2024, I posted my SERIOUS fears about the Uniswap app at the Play Store. I downloaded it and was horrified that when I attempted to connect it to my Ledger it clearly and openly asked for my seed phrase. My 80th birthday is less than a month away. So, I've seen a lot. This request for my seed phrase scared me instantly and I deleted the app and reported it via this thread. Several here on Reddit questioned my story and swore that the Play Store app isn't a fake. Even called me a troll. From your story, I can only assume that you downloaded the fake app from the Play Store. Afterwards, I went only to and launched the app there. At that site, as soon as you press the launch button, a small screen pops up at the bottom telling you to download the app while exhibiting the Play Store logo. Many would be tempted to do that. But, I canceled that screen and proceeded to execute my first transaction. Also, on that site there is another screen that says “Update Available” and “Update Now”, while showing the Play Store logo. I am surprised that Uniswap allows those kinds of criminal intrusions onto its official site. I pray that you were not fatally harmed by your sad experience!

  2. There is an official app for the Uniswap wallet it’s on the Play Store and the Apple App Store.
