Metamask on mobile & safety

Hello guys,

I sometimes see advice in the blockchain community, about not typing your seed phrase anywhere, arguing that maybe keyloggers or something can capture the seed.

But now, if you want to use a wallet shared between desktop and mobile, you must type your seed in mobile to import your wallet.

So, can we say that the “never tap your seed” is a bit paranoid, or is it really a thing ?

And if so, is there a way to be as secure as possible?

Using a hot wallets, this is unavoidable. Therefore, the security of hot wallets is average.
If you want to be more secure, then using a cold wallet is the best option.

Hey @Mandarr, welcome to the MetaMask community! :fox_face:

The most important rule is to NEVER share your Secret Recovery Phrase with anyone. If you are recovering your wallet on another device, you are correct in that you will have to type in your 12-word phrase.

And as @0coininMM has mentioned, hardware wallets can provide much more security.
