How To Keep Your Best Wallet Secure

Learn the best security measures for your Best Wallet app.

Updated yesterday

It is vitally important to keep your Best Wallet secure in order to safeguard your crypto.

While Best Wallet is designed to have the most cutting-edge, up-to-date security features, the responsibility of securing your Best Wallet also falls on you, the user. Most crypto is lost or stolen due to user error, which can be easily avoided.

Follow our essential tips to keep your Best Wallet safe, protecting you from unauthorised access, hacks, and phishing attempts.

Use a secure log in method

Your Best Wallet is as secure as the methods you use to access it. Start by using a secure email account you trust and have set up methods of recovering.

Tip: Email passwords should be long, unique, and include a mix of letters, numbers, and symbols. Try to avoid easily guessable information like your name or birthdate.

Avoid using public or shared devices to access your wallet. For enhanced security, Best Wallet supports single sign-on (SSO) account creation via Web3Auth, mirroring the simplicity and security of accessing something like your Google account.

Use a unique and memorable passcode

When you first sign up for Best Wallet, you will have to set up a 4-digit passcode to help secure your account. Don’t use a memorable date like your birthday, the current year, or popular combinations like 1234 or 1111.

You can also reset your passcode in the settings section of your Best Wallet app.

Enable two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication (2FA) adds an extra layer of security to your Best Wallet by requiring two forms of identification before access is granted.

This usually means something you know (your passcode) and something you have (a code sent to your phone or generated by an app). It significantly reduces the risk of unauthorised access to your wallet.

Even if someone manages to gain access to your email or social account, they won't be able to access your wallet without the second verification step.

Set up 2FA using a trusted number or authentication app like Google Authenticator to ensure that only you can access your wallet.

You can set up or change your 2FA in your Best Wallet's "Settings" tab.

Set up biometric authentication

You can also set up biometric authentication in Best Wallet (such as fingerprint or facial recognition), which offers a convenient and secure way to access your Best Wallet.

This method ensures that only you can unlock your wallet, adding a personal layer of security that is difficult to breach.

Regularly update your Best Wallet app

Keep your Best Wallet app updated to the latest version. You can check for regular updates via your Apple App Store or Google Play store.

Updates often include security enhancements and bug fixes that protect your wallet from new threats. Regular updates ensure you benefit from the latest security features and improvements.

Be wary of phishing attempts

Phishing is a common method hackers use to gain access to personal information. Be cautious of suspicious emails or messages claiming to be from Best Wallet.

Always verify the authenticity of the message and never click on suspicious links or provide your personal information. Best Wallet will never ask for your log in details, passcode, or any personal data.

Stay up-to-date by following Best Wallet's social media channels

Best Wallet actively communicates with its users and provides important information regarding scams, updates, and best practices through its social media channels.

Make sure to follow Best Wallet on platforms like X (formerly Twitter) and Telegram. By keeping up with Best Wallet's social media updates, you can stay ahead of potential scams and be informed about the latest developments and security measures.

Ensure that you follow the official, verified Best Wallet accounts to avoid misinformation and phishing attempts disguised as legitimate sources.

Some finals tips

  1. Regularly check your Best Wallet transactions and balances. If you notice any unauthorised transactions or suspicious activity, immediately change your passwords and contact Best Wallet support.

  2. Stay informed about the latest security threats and best practices in cryptocurrency security. The more you know, the better you can protect yourself against crypto threats.

  3. Avoid using public Wi-Fi networks when accessing your Best Wallet as they are often unsecured and can be a hotbed for cyber threats. Rather, use a secure, private network or a VPN to encrypt your internet connection and protect your data.
