Metamask exploit

Metamask has been very secured with their existence and it’s one of the best non-custodial software wallets, we even recommend utilizing it because of its popularity and security. And with the recent security breach effecting 7000 users we have to up the game by taking the advice of hardware wallets to store and secure long term investments while splitting funds with multiple wallets/keys for certain activities like trading, investing or airdrops.

We don’t know what we don’t know

This is very dangerous because even the experts do not know the root cause until maybe more damages and to keep up with all the updates from many devices will be an impossible task for anyone who is not tech savvy since this Metamask exploit is not the first and it won’t be the last; however when it comes to security of your crypto portfolio you need to invest the time. We have a few great options when it comes to non-custodial software wallets from Metamask to Uniswap but don’t forget to keep your devices up-to-date as the first thing.

How to Protect your Investments

As always be careful with your cryptoS especially with new exploits, old phishing attempts or regular security breaches from centralized parties. Diversification your investment is one thing but also your security as well since even the “reasonably secured” parties got exploited not to mention the mainstream users. Needless to say that the technologies are not yet matured enough for the regular everyday consumers to feel confident about personal responsibilities as we continue to improve the overall experience and getting it all ready for mass adoption in the coming years ahead.
