Privacy is paramount

Kraken Wallet collects the absolute minimum amount of data required to function as a wallet. Not even internal app performance analytics are collected.

User activity is proxied through Kraken’s own infrastructure, shielding your IP address and preventing your identity and location information from potential external exposure. 

The privacy of your personal information is very important to us. We don’t hold any Kraken Wallet user sign-in details, email addresses or KYC information.

Backed by Kraken’s industry-leading security

Safeguarding your data and digital assets is our number one objective. Kraken Wallet was built in collaboration with the team that has secured Kraken exchange’s assets for over 12 years. It has multiple layers of security protecting your private keys: biometrics from your mobile device and user-provided password encryption.

But true to our Security Above Everything mindset, we didn’t stop there.

We engaged Trail of Bits to do a full-scale security audit on our code to make sure we weren’t missing anything. Since 2012, Trail of Bits has helped secure some of the world’s most targeted organizations and devices by combining high-end security research with a real-world attacker mentality to reduce risk and fortify code.

Kraken Wallet is the first major-exchange wallet to be open-source at launch 

Open source development strengthens security by making every line of code we deploy available for third-party review. Kraken Wallet’s code is available on GitHub.

Why open source? Because it’s at the heart of what crypto is all about: transparency, decentralization and community. It’s why we have an open-source grant program: to highlight and elevate the great work that’s crucial to helping cryptocurrencies reach their potential.

Our work wouldn’t be possible without the countless hours spent on innovative ideas by passionate open-source contributors. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies simply would not exist without these heroes. Kraken will always support the open-source community and Kraken Wallet furthers this commitment.
