Protect your crypto wallet from prying eyes with the new Wallet Lock Screen in the Opera Crypto Browser on Android and iOS

Hello everyone,

No crypto-focused browser worth its salt would be complete without a Crypto Wallet – and sure enough, the Opera Crypto Wallet is a key feature of our browser. Our non-custodial Crypto Wallet includes network support for chains including Ethereum, Polygon, BNB Chain, Celo, FIO, and more. It also lets you seamlessly connect your Crypto Mobile Opera Browser directly to Ethereum, BNB Chain, and Polygon dApps. 

Now, for an extra layer of security, we’re introducing a dedicated Lock Screen for your crypto wallet.

For all security-conscious users, enabling proper protection on their device, such as a PIN or a biometric check (fingerprint or face recognition) is key to keeping their data safe. That’s especially if they’re into crypto and want to double down on safeguarding their assets. Depending on which mobile device you use, you will likely have access to one or all of those protective measures.

Using this exact PIN or biometric protection available on your phone, the Wallet Lock Screen in the Opera Crypto Browser puts one additional barrier between your Wallet and prying eyes. This way, you can protect yourself and your assets while also being able to sign your transactions seamlessly and securely.

Better tracker blocking and enhanced ad-blocking UI

The Opera Crypto Browser is already one of the most secure browsers in the market. It has several key privacy features enabled by default, including ad and tracker blocking, cookie dialog blocking, a secure clipboard, and more. In this latest update, we are further improving our browser to protect you from a wider range of trackers, keeping even more of those pesky scripts away.

You get the most powerful security features in the Crypto Browser out of the box the moment you install it on your device. But true power users want to control all aspects of their experience online. So we are also releasing a revamped user interface that allows you to customize your settings and keep yourself safe when browsing or transacting through your Crypto Browser.

These are just a few of the ways in which we’re trying to improve your security and give everyone a window into the world of cryptocurrency, the blockchain, and Web3 on mobile. Download the Opera Crypto Browser on the App Store and Google Play Store, and stay tuned for more exciting updates.

Happy browsing!
