Add more security to Brave Wallet

Could you please expand the security by adding an optional 13-th word aka passphrase to the wallet seedphrase during wallet creation?
More optional security doesn’t hurt and makes your users feel more comfortable with your product.
If not, what’s the reason for it?

That’s currently the only reason why I use MyCrypto/MyEtherWallet over Brave Wallet.

Cheers,

@FireDragon Thanks for the request.

Enhancing security options for our users is always an area we want to consider.

We also know, if we want to offer a feature like this, that we need to bring it into the product in a very thoughtful way and making sure that the user knows the exact consequences of using this flow.

I will update this thread if something more concrete goes into the pipeline. In the meantime, we will be doing some research and design on this feature.

Thanks,

Hubert

this is not something brave would necessarily do. It was determined that 12 words was plenty secure but the consensus . If you want to have an additional 12 words for a total of 24 then buy a hardware wallet.

Only these sizes are supported:
12, 15, 18, 21, or 24
You can create a 24-word seed phrase with another wallet and restore in Brave though.

IMO the most secure option shouldn’t be locked behind a paywall of a over 100$ hardware device, it should be available via the software.
Especially if you store your own money and there is no way to get it back, if one gets your 12 words.

Thank you, that’s good to know.
But why aren’t we allowed to choose between 12 and 24 during the wallet creation, if 24 words are supported anyway?

i think there is a way to add the 24 words but the physical device you also need to click a button to confirm a transaction thus making it far more secure. no one wants to provide a product for free

In my opinion, the product is the physical device with a secure chip which functions as a secure storage for your keys. The 24 word phrase is not the product, so I would like to have the native option to create it in the brave wallet. The drawback for the customer without the device is that one is solely responsible to store the keys somewhere safe.

yes the words are not the product and yes it is just the security feature button. Yes you would need to keep your funds safe just like any other form of money or goods.
