Introduction

Waves.Exchange is a secure system, but we continue to take care of safekeeping of the clients funds. So, we developed a product called Waves Keeper. The product allows to hold your Waves.Exchange keys securely while interacting safely with third-party web resources. This is a kind of Simple Authentication and SSO for dApps or Waves-enabled web applications that allows to sign transactions without entering your private key or password.

SEEDs and private keys are encrypted and stored within the extension and cannot be accessed by the dApps and services on the web, giving you peace of mind that your funds are always safe from hackers and malicious sites. Completing a transaction doesn’t require entering any sensitive information.

Waves Keeper is designed for convenience, so you can sign transactions with just a couple of clicks. You can create multiple wallets and switch between them easily, and if you ever forget the password to the account you can recover it from your SEED, as normal. With Waves Keeper, you can always be sure that you are in the right place and confirm outgoing transactions from your Waves.Exchange account.
