This guide offers several tips on ensuring security in the NFT and Web 3.0 space.
Seek support from official channels
You are advised to ask for assistance on APENFT's official channels. Take caution when you raise questions in the community.
Never ever disclose your seed phrase
Your seed phrase is your privacy. Never share it with anyone, even with people you trust.
APENFT is not a wallet solution provider and will not ask for your seed phrase in any case.
Make sure the Wallet APPs and Chrome Extensions you use are provided by official sources
When you add a wallet extension to a browser, please make sure you have downloaded it from the official website. Please keep an eye on the reviews and developer information while downloading it. If you are not sure, please check with the app provider.
Never ever click links from unknown sources
Stay vigilant when browsing websites and interacting with others on social media or Discord. Do not click any form of ads, images, or links.
Do not use previously used passwords or password managers
Using the same password for multiple accounts will make your account more vulnerable to hacks. If you are concerned about being confused by using special characters, try password generators like 1Password or LastPass.
Use Two-Factor Verification (2FA)
Enable 2FA on authenticator apps like Google Authenticator or Authy and avoid using SMS for 2FA, which involves potential security issues. You may also consider hardware devices for enhanced security. Google Titan, Thesis, and Yubico are some of the good choices.
Use hardware crypto wallets
Hardware wallets add an additional layer of protection for your funds and NFTs. Many users prefer Ledger or Trezor. If you are up for the best level of protection, try a disconnected computer with a hardware device. A disconnected computer is a device that has never been connected to the Internet.
Nevertheless, be sure to store your hardware devices safely.
Do not email with or download files from Strangers
We recommend that you ignore emails, files (including PDF files), or QR codes from strangers. Attachments in any form can carry viruses or malware. Emails that look too perfect to be authentic are likely scams. Unfortunately, some malicious actors look for opportunities to take advantage of new users in the NFT space. If someone offers something that looks too good to be true, it is likely to be a scam. Before buying NFTs from sellers on APENFT, be sure to perform due diligence on the seller, the seller's collectibles, the NFT item and the trade history.
It's necessary to do this homework because blockchain-based transactions are irreversible. Plus, it's super fun to learn about the stories behind each NFT!
