Burner wallets - use with caution

In the Glif Wallet, you are allowed to select from 3 burner wallet options:

We don't recommend you use these wallet options for a few reasons:

  1. Copying and pasting seed phrases into the browser is dangerous. Browser extensions can steal information without you knowing, which puts your funds at risk.
  2. Copying and pasting seed phrases into your browser is a bad habit. We don't recommend doing this anywhere on the web. Your seed phrase should be locked away in a safe location that only your most trusted family and friends know about in case something happens to you.
  3. Copying and pasting seed phrases into your browser usually means you're storing your seed phrases in unsafe locations. If pasting a seed phrase into a browser wallet is the most efficient means of using a wallet, it's probably much easier for a hacker to steal it.

Browser wallets in general are considered unsafe. We highly recommend you read this article if you want to learn more.
