• Always backup your Secret Phrase. Your Secret Phrase is the key to your wallet. If you lose your Secret Phrase then you will lose access to your wallet.

  • If you choose to manually back up your Secret Phrase, write it down on a piece of paper and store it in a safe and secure place. If you are looking for something more durable then paper, we recommend using a Cryptotag.

  • To make sure only you have access to your Maiar mobile app, make sure to add a second layer of authentication such as Passcode or Touch/Face ID to access your funds on your Maiar Wallet. This prevents any bad actors accessing your wallet in case you lose your mobile device or just left it at the table while getting a cup of tea for yourself.

  • Make sure your device is free of any malware and never install the Maiar Wallet onto a rooted device. To make sure you are always using an authentic version of Maiar Wallet, you should download the App exclusively from the links provided on our website: maiar.com

  • Always use 2FA: First, you should always use second-factor authentication (also known as “2FA” or “one-time password”) and a strong password to secure your email and iCloud accounts. Here are the guides to set up 2FA with Gmail, Outlook, Protonmail and iCloud.

  • Recovery options: You should also always make sure that your recovery options are set up for your email and iCloud account. Here is how to add this on Gmail, Outlook, Protonmail, and iCloud.

  • We strongly recommend avoiding using a mobile phone number as a second factor. Instead, use known authentication services like Auth or 1Password. We don't recommend Google Authenticator or SMS verification because it is tied to your device so if you lose your device, you can't access your codes.

  • Never share a password: As a rule, never share your device passwords with anyone and avoid using the same password for multiple accounts.

  • Never share your Secret Phrase with anyone.
