We have built Easy with state-of-the-art security in order to protect your tokens, NFTs, and data. This includes end-to-end encryption for your secrets using keys derived from your phone. This means that only you can decrypt and access your information and only on your phone. No one else can access your end-to-end encrypted data.
Additionally, we require each user to enable their phone’s biometric authentication feature in order to unlock Easy each time the app is opened and before every transaction. This means additional protection in case someone other than you gets access to your phone.
That said, software wallets in general are not as secure as hardware wallets. We encourage you to use a hardware wallet such as Ledger to store the tokens you do not need readily available for everyday web3 use. You can easily and safely connect your Ledger wallet to your Easy profile so that you can see all your token balances in Easy, and show off your most treasured NFTs in your Easy profile. Connecting another wallet, such as a Ledger wallet to Easy is completely safe and only enables Easy to read and display the contents of that wallet. Easy cannot authorize or make changes to your other wallet in any manner.
Moreover, there is no need to import your wallets and share your keys to use Easy. You can connect your wallets and vault in read-only state and display your NFTs in your Gallery and Showcase to build a beautiful Easy Profile and access all the social features in Easy. That way nothing in your wallet is ever exposed.
In addition to safety features like the wallet system we built (you can segregate transactions between hot wallets and read-only vault wallets), we also create a social profile (with verification via twitter, discord and other info like your ENS or NFT ownership) to enable profile to profile crypto transfer is a very safe way (you know you are sending to the right person and not some long public address).
Finally, we have something called Signal which crowdsources data from the community and also takes data from blockchain at the time of transaction approval to give you a view of whether what you are transacting with looks safe.
