Atomic wallet advisory

Atomic wallet is closed source wallet product, and at one time it was the only decent mobile wallet for the cosmos hub.

If you used atomic wallet to generate a seed phrase, you should please consider that seed phrase compromised, and you should move funds into a new wallet asap.

That new wallet should not use the seed phrase that you generated with atomic wallet, it is perfectly possible that the atomic wallet generated seed phrase that you made is now compromised.

In terms of hardware wallets, ledger seems to be the current leader. In terms of browser extension wallets, and mobile wallets, the current leader seems to be Keplr.

Remember, do not reuse the seed phrase, because your seed phrase may be compromised.

on closed source security products

Whether it’s a smart contract or a wallet, when you see closed source, that should likely be a red flag. Atomic wallet is closed source.
