Securing your wallet2019-12-23T18:47:27+01:00

Be careful with online services

You should beware of any service designed to store your money online. Many stock exchanges and online wallets have suffered from security breaches in the past, and such services usually still do not provide enough insurance and security to store money like a bank. It is recommended to install a Burst-Wallet to manage your own money. Use online wallets only from trusted sites.

Keep your software up to date

Using the latest version of your Burst-software allows you to receive important stability and security updates. Updates can prevent problems of varying degrees of difficulty, include new useful features, and help keep your wallet safe. With the latest version of your wallet software, you also ensure that you can connect to the BURST network. In addition, installing updates for all other programs on your computer or mobile phone is also important to make your wallet environment safer.

Backup your wallet passphrase

The key to restore your wallet for Burst is your personal passphrase (private key). If you have a backup of the private keys for your visible Burst addresses, you are always able to recover your funds with this keys. Only one location or type is bad for security. If your backup does not depend on a single location, it is less likely that a negative event will prevent you from restoring your wallet. Consider using different media such as USB sticks, paper and CDs.
