I’m wondering how can we be 100% sure, that 12/24 seedwords, that we have to write down, which are initially generated by any digital crypto wallet application, are not quietly/in the background sent to application creators and stored on their servers for future use? Is there any 100% proof other than creators’ verbal assurance that they do not send our seeds to their servers?Saturday, July 2nd, 2022 at 17:06 #325053SmoothGoing
You can create and use them without ever connecting to any servers.Saturday, July 2nd, 2022 at 17:13 #325054Knurlinger
That’s why you should generate the seed offline with a true hardware randomizer (hardware wallet f.e.).
A seed should never touch a keyboard or be on a computer.Saturday, July 2nd, 2022 at 17:54 #325055po00on
Don’t connect your device to the internet and then you can be sure.Saturday, July 2nd, 2022 at 17:59 #325056Calm_Entrepreneur922
Open source software, and keeping up on updates and feature branches on your wallets’ repos. If you don’t understand programming languages you can learn or trust those that do.
