Tutorials: How to encrypt a wallet

From CloakCoin Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The CloakCoin Core client contains a feature that encrypts your wallet with a passphrase. Keep in mind that you need to enter the passphrase every time you want to access your funds or look at a transaction. Encrypting a cloakcoin wallet restricts it to “spectator” mode, in which you can see the balance and incoming transactions, but nothing else in detail.

Keep your Passphrase secure!!, if you loose your passphrase you will be locked out of your coins!!

Encrypting your wallet allows you to set a password for anyone trying to withdraw any funds. This helps protect against thieves, though it cannot protect against keylogging malware.
