Keep your security - Install Cryptonite Plugin for Chrome

in #bitcoin3 years ago

Today a friend of mine entered misspelled address and got phised - his coins were extracted and spent.

Since cryptos are anonymous (well not exactly but +/- yes) there are loads of scams and fake websites looking exactly the same as proper ones.

I suggest to bookmark exchanges or GUI wallets for ETH and never ever enter them from google or typing.

But there is also a cool chrome addon called Cryptonite - it checks popular crypto websites and tells if they are real or not.

It may not be very accurate as some new websites of crypto may not be judged correctly. Its better to bookmark a website you know is absolutely correct address and always open the bookmarked one.

Great tip for Chrome browser addon. Will definitely check this out...

I look at the comments and the feeling that people write lizh would give them money!((You did not check this plugin, from where you know it is normal or not... I do not want to offend the author of the post, but be careful!!!

its made by MetaCert - https://metacert.com/ you can check the company. They are security specialists

Yeah you are right! They seem to be very trustworthy! :)

thank you friends,

The principal! He will give me TP! I would hate for my bungholio to get polio....Where I come from, we have no bunghole.

I would recommend you to read articles about the technology and to try to understand the basics because otherwise you will be phished... earlier or later. Only knowledge can protect you

Information is useful. Security of money is a complex area in Cryptocurrency. It all comes down to DYOR (Do your own research :)

one should take precautions from the begining

This is definately a great site that I will be using in future. As you said, there are loads of phishing sites, many advertising on google ads so they appear as the top site when you type in your site name to google. This sounds like a great solution!

Cyber securities are going to be huge in the future.

What makes you believe that?

It is all about decentralization. A 'bank' will never understand.

Nice info, useful plugin...

Useful plugin. Nowadays everything is possible and fake websites is an example of it. Most of the people are not much familiar to the internet and fake websites and chances of losing their assets is too much. Good awareness post.

Use 2fa and you will be much safer

This is a very valuable post. So many people just don't know how important it is to protect your cryptos. Thanks for the post and I am thankful for the information. Did not know that there were fake accounts out there trying to look like the real ones. These crooks will stop at nothing.

Nice update @kingscrown i will always check correctly when entering the wallet address.
Is the cryptonite addon for free??

for now.. yes!

Bitcoin phenomenon or electronic money more and more favored many people who access the virtual world. In Indonesia alone, the status of issuing Bitcoin permits is heavily debated. Some agreed, while others refused.

There is going to be a lot of money to be made by offering security for cryptocurrencies in the near future. It is too easy to scam users out of their money and there is very little that can be done about it.

Awesome post! I really appreciate how supportive the Steemit/crypto community is as a relatively new cryptocurrency connoisseur. I think this is the kind of support that demonstrates the value and potential for sites like Steemit and crypto currency in general. Thank you for the advice.

Very important for security thanks for the knowledge shared. Keep it up 👆..

Its always better to be safe. It is so easy to lose control of your crypto that it is worrying. Even if it is small now in 5 years you might look back at 50 grand worth that was lost.

That's really helpful. With all the thefts and scams going on I guess it doesn't hurt to be on the safer side. Thank you very much.

The trick is they send you some complimentary message as a brand for a "thank you" gesture. You will be asked to click a link and voila,there and then they GOT you. You can read as many mails sent to you as possible but never open any untrusted links. This has cost many their hard earned funds. Be wise. Hackers aint resting so you should not.

Excellent information of bitcoin, nice post, thanks for sharing

Danke für den Tipp

Sweet post. so actionable and simple. I really like it and I appreciate the pointer.

Wow... Thank you for the information. A lot of them abounds here and there. It will surely save some people from this scammers

Thank you for the tip. I was advised not to use Chrome for cryptocurrency sites. However, it is my preferred browser. Now, I can comfortably use it. Appreciate the tip.

so instead of creating bookmarks, i.e. keeping security in my own hands, i should grant an unverified chrome plugin access to my browser? not convinced, sorry

totally agree with you

exceptional!

this is an important update. I used to typed the URL without caring about these issues

thanks for the useful information!

Yup, I got that addon when I got my MEW.

Great shout! There's so much to be aware of in the crypto space, in many ways I think we're all testers before this becomes the norm in society. We'll make the mistakes etc so everyone else can enjoy a safe crypto experience. I'm sure it won't be long until Crypto security is as commonplace as everyday internet security. Time to get my Ledger ordered!!

Please Guys don't ever save your wallet details in any email or google drive as hackers are watching your data from there end even hardware wallet is not fully secure now a days

Thanks for the link and information. I know that Binance makes sure your on their site by having you click their link before logging in. I did not know there was software out there to check all crypto sites. Thanks!

TY. Great info. Just installed it. Good to know, very good.

To be honest sometimes I think remedy is worse than the disease.
how do you know the plugin is not stealing your keys?

your post is pretty good. this is a lesson for us

Thanks! It is good to know that there are still good people in the world, who are interested in helping others.

Wow, interesting, but is it safe to install it? I'm afraid of the plugin developers are phisers too. lol. kidding. But, It seems like I have to test it, to make sure it is safe to be installed and utilized. I upvoted and resteemed your post, because it is a good information for me. Thank you for posting this !

Gracias por compartir tan valiosa información! Saludos

thanks for sharing ! very usefull and smart thing to do

I think the best way to protect your money is with a ledger wallet. there are so many ways of people hacking in computer and online wallets.

I have heard of cryptonite before but haven't looked into what it is, thank you for describing the benefits of it in your post, great info!

It's just as easy to upload a fake chrome plugin to the app store. Avoid installing unnecessary tools/plugins. Bookmark is a good idea.
