Why is Guarda Wallet an Interface?
When you create a wallet on Guarda, public and private keys for all supported currencies are generated in your browser. Now you can use the wallet interface to directly interact with the blockchain. Send your public address to anybody and receive coins or tokens from them. Congratulations!
We do not store private keys, passwords or any other personal data. It makes Guarda the most advanced and secure interface for direct interaction with the blockchain.
What is blockchain?
Blockchain is similar to a huge electronic ledger. It’s a continuous uninterrupted chain of blocks that can store information about financial operations and almost anything that has any value. Blocks in this chain consist of transactions sent from various wallets, including Guarda Wallet, MyEtherWallet, Coinomi, Exodus, Jaxx and others.
Blockchain gives the opportunity to track the addresses of sender and receiver as well as the balance on a certain address and often the amount of transferred coins. When you check your balance or transaction history in Guarda Wallet, you see data directly from blockchain, we don’t store it in our side.
You are in full control of the funds you store on Guarda Wallet, hence you bear full responsibility for their safety and integrity.
- We don’t have access to your wallet
- We cannot restore or edit your private keys
- We cannot restore or reset your password
- We cannot reverse or cancel the transactions you perform
Guarda Team strongly encourages you to keep your private keys and passwords in a secure place. To help you do that, we have integrated an option to export every key separately and make a full wallet backup. You only need to hide them away from prying eyes. If you lose them, nobody would be able to help you restore access to your wallet.
If you can’t help me restore my wallet, why should I use Guarda?
Our values correspond with the ideas of freedom and decentralization, intrinsic for the whole crypto environment. You don’t have to entrust the management of your money to a bank or anybody else. This is how blockchain works. If you want to enjoy its benefits in the smoothest way, welcome to Guarda!
How can I protect my funds from loss?
Make sure your password and keys are stored securely and you wouldn’t lose them, because if you do, they will be gone forever. As soon as you create a wallet from scratch or import the private keys, create a backup right away. Do not store it on your computer. If you are extra serious about the safety of your funds, we recommend using hardware wallets.
