Risk Alert: Safeguarding Your Seed Phrase

Seed phrase hack can happen due to human errors, such as storing it in a Google Doc or a desktop text file. Exclusive access must remain within your control, this means to not share it with others including customer support agents. Beware of potential threats, including malware or phishing schemes, aiming to deceive you into exposing your seed phrase. Exercise utmost caution if anyone prompts you to unveil your seed phrase, regardless of the pretext. Your diligence is your best defense against such risks.
