Addressing recent concerns related to SteemAuto "asking for" our ACTIVE KEYS

in Project HOPElast year




Recently I've been helping @Xpilar to test and promote his new "clone" of the old SteemAuto. So far, it has been working much better and it's more reliable than the previous version.

However, several users asked me a few simple yet straightforward questions such as those below:

Is it a must I enter my active private key?

I'm a bit skeptical about the Active Keys

posting key would be fine for me... but active key?

I tried joining the curation trail using my private posting key, but it said the transaction requires an active key. Ideally, a private posting key should be good enough

Have you also wondered about it? I surely did. And it did concern me a little bit.



My personal choice was to put my trust in Xpilar's work, as I have known him for quite some time and I think he would have too much to lose (and too little to gain) if he would like to abuse the trust of all people supporting him as a witness.

I'm fully aware that the previous version of SteemAuto (launched by @steem-supporter) also required an active key to authorize access. I've never really understood why, but during all those months of me using it, I never had an unpleasant experience. My funds were never missing.

So I have even fewer concerns to trust Xpilar.

However, I did ask him to clarify why is an active key required and he finally published a post about it:

There have been questions about the use of active keys when using SteemAuto, We will explain it

I deeply recommend checking it out.

RESTEEM and earn my appreciation :)


I would appreciate every single resteem. Let's help Xpilar's message to reach as many people as possible.

Greetings my dear @crypto.piotr, without a doubt it is a hard work that you are doing, which will bring benefits to all of us. It is necessary to keep the community informed which demonstrates the transparency of the process. Thank you for such valuable information.

Thank you very much for the information dear friend, I am about to read the publication and socialize it, have an excellent start of the week.

Hi @crypto.piotr, thanks for this information. Yes, it is a question I also asked myself, if to vote from my blog, comment, make resteem I only need my PostingKey, then why I must enter my active key...It is a valid question. I will check @xpilar's post, to see the justification. Although if I tell you the truth, I do not have any kind of distrust with xpilar, because, so far what he has done has been giving and supporting everyone, for a long time.
Resteem this post.

Thanks for the update.

Hello @cryto.piotr
Thanks for the information, I will review the publication of @xpilar. Reesteemear this post

I was surprised as well when it was asking active private key. I have checked there after discussion with you about their curation trial. Now form both the posts from your and xpillar, its clear to me. thanks.

I also chose to trust and put my password active, I don't think there is any problem

thanks for talking about this nice topic that is a question by many over here. Post esteemed. Thanks again

Actually many users have these queries. Resteemed

Thank you for sharing. I will read @Xpilar post as well.

That was my concern too resteemed to spread the word

Hello friend @crypto.piotr.

Actually these concerns are valid, and therefore, the importance of your publication and that of @Xpilar, thanks for providing this type of information to all of us because in this way we will be calmer. Greetings.

Greetings @Piotr , Thank you very much for clarifying the doubts .
This sentence should clear a lot of doubts .
" the reason why Steemlogin requests your active key is to execute this contract between you and our application, also known as signing the transaction for authorization."

It is very important to know this.....


I am glad you addressed this concern. Thank you.

Thank you for clarifying the doubts

If @crypto.piotr posts their passwords I have no problem doing so, they have a lot to lose in cases of attacking us and very little to gain.

It's a question that I asked myself too, but just like you, I chose to put my trust in Xpilar

Thanks for the information. I'll definitely check Xpilar's post

This is an important issue. Active key is the key of our fund and safeguarding of it is necessary for us.

Thanks for clarifying this for people that have reservations about it. Nice one buddy
