1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars 8 3.38 is a Ethereum web wallet developed by kvhnuke and tayvano. The wallet is currently in beta mode and the use of small amounts of Ether is advised.

Security Measures & Application Behavior

Control Over Your Money

The wallet gives you full control over your Ether. This means no third party can freeze or lose your funds. You are however still responsible for securing and backing up your wallet.

Centralized Validation

The wallet relies on a centralized service by default. This means a third party must be trusted to not hide or simulate payments.

Remote App

The wallet is loaded from a remote location. This means that whenever you use your wallet, you need to trust the developers not to steal or lose your Ether in an incident on their site. Using a browser extension or mobile app, if available, can reduce that risk.

Vulnerable Environment

The wallet can be loaded on computers which are vulnerable to malware. Securing your computer, using a strong passphrase, moving most of your funds to cold storage or enabling two-factor authentication can make it harder to steal on your Ether.

Basic privacy

Prevents spying on your payments
The wallet makes it harder to spy on your balance and payments by rotating addresses. You should still take care to use a new Ethereum address each time you request payment.

Discloses information to a third party
This service can associate your payments together, log your IP address and know your real identity if you provide personal information like your email, name or banking account.

Tor can be used
The wallet lets you setup and use Tor as a proxy to prevent attackers or Internet service providers from associating your payments with your IP address.
