Safety is top priority at imToken, also with this security upgrade
Nobody wants to have funds stolen or lost. Whether it is a hacker or an insider, once tokens are lost, it is very difficult to retrieve them back. It is better to take precautions before the unwanted happens. Therefore, we try to publish lots of educational content and tutorials, and we put a lot of effort into the application level. Such as with this update. Let’s take a look. 👇
Blurred application interface for enhanced privacy.
In version 2.7.0, when your imToken is in the background, the interface will automatically be blurred (Android phones will display a white screen effect) protecting all private information. For example, when you show your phone to your friends/colleagues, key information such as tokens/mnemonic private keys will be better hidden, adding additional protection.
First-time transfer risk prompt
Putting the wrong transfer amount or payment address can easily lead to the loss of tokens. Therefore, imToken 2.7.0 added a hint for if you transfer for the first time. When you transfer money in imToken for the first time, the prompt in the figure below will appear to ensure that the key information of the transfer has been verified to avoid unnecessary token losses.
