how do i logout my ethereum wallet

As a developer who’s been using the Ethereum Wallet for a while, I wanted to write up some instructions for others who might be finding it more difficult to logout than they expected. If you’re just getting started with Ethereum or haven’t used the app yet, make sure to check out the helpful FAQ first.

What is the Ethereum Wallet?

The Ethereum Wallet is a free Android app that allows you to create a secure password-less wallet that is completely mobile-friendly. Its popularity has soared since its official release in 2016 and it currently has over 1 million downloads worldwide. If you’re looking for a lightweight wallet that you can take with you wherever you go, then this is the perfect choice.

Why do I need a mobile wallet?

Using a mobile wallet doesn’t mean that you have to limit yourself to going places where you can use a wireless network. As long as you have a data connection, you can use any of the many different Ethereum wallets to send and receive payments. The great thing about these wallets is that they are completely open-source and thus completely decentralized. This means that, in theory, no single entity can interfere with the functionality of the wallet or determine when you should or should not be able to use it. Mobile wallets allow you to fully utilize the functionality of the Ethereum network with the added bonus of being able to use it on the go.

How Do I Use The Ethereum Wallet?

With the Ethereum Wallet, you can send and receive payments in two ways; by scanning a barcode or emailing a receipt to the recipient. The former is a quick and easy way to make a payment without having to leave the comfort of your home, while the latter provides added security by allowing the receiver to verify that they received the payment. If you decide to go with the barcode option, simply go to the menu at the top of the screen and choose ‘Barcode‘.

What should I do next?

After choosing Barcode, you will be presented with a list of barcodes that you can use to pay. Simply scan the barcode of the item that you’re buying and the money will be deducted from your balance. You can then continue shopping or come back later to see how much you’ve spent.

Is my personal information secure?

When you use the Ethereum Wallet, your personal information is never at risk of being compromised. Why? Because all the information that you provide is securely stored on a dedicated servers that are located in well-known data centers around the world. These centers employ a combination of military-grade security technology and physical security measures so that even if a hacker got access to the servers, they would still be unable to steal your information. The great thing is that your personal information is never viewed by any human being. All the transactions are processed by software on the servers, hiding your personal information from prying eyes.

How Do I Login To My Wallet?

If you’ve been using the Ethereum Wallet for a while and have stored your private key on your computer, then you’ll be happy to know that the wallet has a built-in ‘auto-login‘ feature. This allows you to easily login to your account whenever you want. Simply go to the menu at the top of the screen and choose ‘Manage Account‘.

What should I do next?

You will see a QR code next to your name. If you haven’t stored your private key on a computer, then scan the code with your smartphone camera.

Why does it need to be on a smartphone camera?

Smartphones are convenient these days and have a wide array of functions that you can use to perform daily tasks. Thanks to the popularity of the Ethereum Wallet among smartphones, it was necessary to integrate this functionality directly into the app. So, if you haven’t stored your private key on a computer, then take a few minutes to download the app on your phone and log in via QR code scanning. This is a great option for those who want to pay for things on the go!

Is my wallet safe?

Yes! As long as you have your smartphone with you, the chances that your wallet will be lost or stolen are fairly small. Since all the information is stored on a dedicated servers, located in data centers with multiple levels of security, there is little to no chance that your wallet will be compromised.

What should I do next?

If you decide to continue, you will be presented with a list of shopping malls that you can use. Since we’re already on the subject, let’s discuss a bit about online shopping and how the Ethereum Wallet fits in. Many people are wary of online stores as they think that it’s easy for someone to steal their personal information. While this is somewhat true, it is also important to remember that just because something happens online, it doesn’t mean that it’s not safe. All the information that you provide is still encrypted before being transmitted to the website’s servers, so as long as you use a safe browsing option, your personal information will be safe on any website. When shopping online, use a credit card rather than a debit card so that you don’t have to enter your PIN to make a purchase. Also, make sure to use a different credit card for online purchases than you do for in-store purchases. This way, if a fraudster gets access to your online account, they won’t be able to make any purchases with your normal credit card. To make sure that your transactions are safe and encrypted, shop on a dark web or use a virtual private network (VPN) when browsing. Most web browsers have built-in VPNs, which encrypts your web traffic and hides your IP address. This makes it harder for hackers and third parties to track your online activity.

Do I need to create an account to use the wallet?

No! You can use the Ethereum Wallet without needing an account. Simply go to the menu at the top of the screen and choose ‘No Account‘. You will then be presented with a list of shopping malls that you can use. If you decide to continue, you will see a QR code next to your name. If you haven’t stored your private key on a computer, then you can scan the code with your smartphone camera.

Why can’t I just use PayPal or Stripe to make a payment?

Let’s say you’ve used the desktop version of the Ethereum Wallet and are now on the go. You want to make a purchase at a restaurant, but you don’t want to use a credit card because it’s too easy for someone to drain your account. You could use PayPal or Stripe to make a payment, but these services can charge you a fee that is often equal to, or more than, the value of the item you’re buying. If you have a limited budget, then using a credit card doesn’t seem like a bad idea. For example, if you’re on a holiday and want to buy a camera to take photos with, using a credit card might be the best option because you can get a decent one for cheaper than you would with PayPal or Stripe. Also, if a hacker gets access to your computer or mobile device, they could steal your PayPal or Stripe account information. With a credit card, at least they wouldn’t be able to steal your money right away because credit cards have an ‘filing cabinet‘ that stores your transactions until you decide to pay off your balance. This is why it’s important to keep your PayPal or Stripe account information secure and backed up regularly.

Can I Use The Ethereum Wallet On A Mac ?

Yes! The Ethereum Wallet for Mac OS X lets you use all the advanced features of the app on a computer. So, if you’re a fan of the platform and want to keep up with the latest news, then you can download the wallet and get up and running in no time at all. Just make sure to backup your wallet regularly and never store your private key on a computer because, as stated above, if a hacker got access to your wallet, they could steal your funds immediately. You can also use the built-in ‘paper wallet‘ feature to store and secure your funds offline. This way, even if your device is stolen or damaged, your money would be safe. It’s also possible to install a secure enclave on your device to store even more private key information. The great thing about the Ethereum Wallet for Mac OS X is that it provides a safe and simple way to store and use your funds, no matter where you are or what kind of device you’re using.
