RE: Warning to users using third party applications - Be extremely careful providing your keys to anyone or any site!

in #security4 years ago

I had no idea people were even sharing keys, seems like just common sense that you shouldn't do that. In the world of cryptos, even well established companies with a good rep have ripped people off, keep private wallet keys for your eyes only when using anything to do with cryptos.

Sort:  

@purpleprose ::))) same here , when I read this I was like "" huh ? " because to me that would be like given out your pin number to your Debit card . but Each to there own ::))

The pin and the card to your mother, so she can pick you up something. At the end of the day it is someone you trust.

Like cryptsy and mt. gox?

They are not family, they are businesses that are profitable now, but may not be in the future. Experience has shown us that a lot of crypto companies exit scam when they run into trouble. Do we really need to keep learning this lesson?

Btw I'm not accusing anyone of anything, it's just bad security to share private keys or even to keep too much money in trusted places like Coinbase or Poloniex.
