We’re rolling out a brand new version of the Stellar wallet this week and wanted to give you a heads up on the upcoming changes.
Wallet v2 is similar to the first version, but improved in the following ways:
– Better performance: faster and more efficient on the server side
– More secure: better protection from targeted wallet attacks
– Two Factor Authentication (2FA): stop an attacker who guesses your password
As a result of this wallet upgrade, users with an activated recovery code will need to do a quick update: log into your account and follow the prompts to reset your recovery code. That’s it!
Once you opt into the 2FA feature, use an app such as Google Authenticator or Authy to add a second layer of security to wallet authentication.
We will be rolling out the upgraded wallet v2 this week. Keep an eye out and let us know if you have any questions.
