Security Best Practices

. Protecting Your Seed Phrase

Never share your seed phrase with anyone. Store it offline in a secure location such as a safe or a secure password manager. Your seed phrase is the key to your wallet and must be protected at all costs.

. Enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for added security. 2FA requires a second form of verification, which helps prevent unauthorized access to your wallet.

. Regular Updates

Keep your Coinbase Wallet extension up to date to benefit from the latest security enhancements and features. Updates often include security patches and performance improvements.

. Phishing Awareness

Be cautious of phishing attempts. Always ensure you are accessing the Coinbase Wallet through the official website or app. Never enter your seed phrase on any website or app other than Coinbase Wallet.
