Secure Keyboard

Some keyboards record all the data that is entered and send it to a server. This is done for spell checking or to train the keyboard to give you better suggestions. To eliminate the risk of leaking your secret recovery phrase through your keyboard, we built a secure in-app keyboard with no dependencies on third parties.

Advantages of the secure keyboard​

  • The keyboard cannot record/save your secret recovery phrase (some device keyboards do this for spell checking and send what you type to a server - this is not safe). Our in-app keyboard does not connect to any network or rely on external dependencies.
  • There is a "scramble" button that shuffles the order of the letters on the keyboard, which improves the security if someone is watching over your shoulder.
  • The keyboard allows only valid words from the BIP39 list to be entered. So there can be no more typos, double spaces, etc.
  • The keyboard has BIP39 words autocomplete for faster imports. It reduces the time it takes to type all 24 words.
  • There is a β€œhide” button that masks the secret recovery phrase that you already entered, improving the security if someone watches over your shoulder.
