Can Hackers Alter The Receiving Addresses If My Phone/App Is Hacked?
CoolWallet S allows users to visually authenticate the actual receiving address and the transaction amount derived from the master private key stored in the Secure Element chip on the e-Paper display.
The address shown on the e-Paper display does not pass through your App, thus, it is protected from the malicious attacks. Moreover, CoolWallet S uses a patented "Cold Compression" process which prevents potential intercepting devices being installed to alter any of the transaction details. With this state of the art compression process, no hackers can disassemble the wallet, place an intercepting device, and reassemble the wallet back to its original state.
To enable the visual authentication feature, simply go to the Settings page of the App, select Show Full Address under Card Management, and enable the feature. Once enabled, you will be able to see the full receiving address during the transaction. However, as the addresses are usually long, it will be separated by multiple segments. Please press the wallet button to switch to the next segment.
