And a few words about the rules for using cryptocurrency apps for iOS and Android:
Safety first! Do not forget about two-factor authentication to protect wallets for iOS and Android. Do not write passwords on the device itself, as it can be lost or hacked. But keep in mind that in case of loss of a password, it is not always possible to recover it even with a Seed-phrase. In addition to the password, set the owner’s fingerprint recognition;
Provide the ability to remotely remove all information from applications;
Be careful with downloading and installing iOS and Android cryptocurrency apps from unverified sources. It is better to use applications recommended by start-up developers (indicated on some sites). Do not open unfamiliar links and files to avoid hacking application accounts using a virus or phishing;
Do not neglect antivirus. Not so long ago, the Cooee application was discovered on the Google Play Store, which is a game with a built-in JSMiner virus. When the application is launched, the Monero hidden mining process was automatically launched. Anti-virus software options: Avast Mobile Security, KIS.
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is the cryptocurrency wallet security process for iOS or Android, which provides for the need to provide two types of authentication to log in to your account. Security levels - personal password and unique code generated by the application. A six-digit code is generated every 20 seconds. Therefore, even having received access to it, an attacker simply does not have time to use it without having access to a mobile device.
Types of account security applications using 2FA:
Google Authenticator (iOS, Android). The standard application that is installed first of all, if there is a binding of a cryptocurrency wallet to the phone. Code generation does not require an internet connection, the application supports several operators and accounts. It can be automatically configured using a QR code (needs a camera).
Authy (iOS, Android). An improved version for two-factor authentication, but so far less prevalent than Google Authenticator.
This is not the entire list of existing mobile applications for cryptocurrency for iOS and Android. Developers are not standing still, offering traders every month something new, unique and even more convenient. And let the world of mobile devices and applications never replace a full-fledged exchange or Forex trading, smartphones, tablets and other devices of this class are reliable assistants to a professional investor anywhere in the world.
