Over time, a lot of crypto traders have fallen victim to scammers. Having vast knowledge and experience in crypto is not a guarantee of safety from scammers. Phishing is a type of cryptocurrency scam that involves tricking victims into giving up their private keys or personal information. It involves a masquerade by the attacker as a legitimate individual or entity to gain the trust of the victim, and collect the non-public keys that provide entry to their wallet to transfer coins to the attacker’s wallet.
BlockWallet provides a solution to enable crypto users to stay safe from phishing attacks. Every user of BlockWallet gets a unique generating art for their account, which distinguishes the wallet login from scam attempts. This unique artwork is displayed in all sensitive regions where you need to input your password.
SAFETY TIPS FOR PHISHING PROTECTION
• Turn on phishing protection in settings. The feature is fully integrated into the wallet, so all that is needed is to keep it on.
• Memorize and always look for your anti-phishing artwork when entering your password.
• Do not share your artwork with anyone. Your artwork is also confidential and private information that should be known to only you.
• Do not interact with BlockWallet if it does not display your artwork. If you interact with BlockWallet and it does not display your unique anti-phishing artwork, you are likely a victim of a phishing attempt and should avoid using the wallet. Instead, contact the community members on Telegram or Discord for guidance.
