No idea, i don’t use Jaxx as i think it’s the worst unsecure wallet of all. But a google search brings up other cases like yours:

Thanks for support, I already spend googling 5 hours but jaxx got hacked last year nothing from 07.11 when I was hacked.

Ugh. Why are you using a custodial wallet?

Not your keys, not your Bitcoin.

I’ve heard nightmare stories about Jaxx dating back to like 2 years ago when someone had hundreds of thousands worth of Dogecoin stolen.


#5

Ugh. Why are you using a custodial wallet?

Because I am idiot :frowning:


#6

I don’t use Jaxx for over a year, but the last time I used it was not a custodial wallet. So there’s something fishy going on.

You were either a victim of a malware or someone close by.


#7

Are have a way he hacked me by infect iphone? But still he will need pin code, but I didnt send any money last 2 months.


#8

If I remember correctly, they don’t encrypt the wallet file at all. There was (rightly) a huge deal about it a few months ago.

So, (i) your phone is either infected or (ii) someone close to you (sadly) robbed you.


#9

I’am not an expert when it comes to security and hacking, but eventually for a bad actor with access to the file system no pin code is needed at all. (Just a wild guess!).

Me personally is avoiding any phone wallets at this time and wife devices at all, only cables where my wallets are.

Mostly your coins are goine, but eventually you learned the lesson and make it better from now. On my end all wallets are on a laptop, cable connected without any other tasks and programs on it just to avoid whatever infection there. No browsing, no downloading, no nothing on that laptop.

It sucks to get hacked, scammed and robbed, but sometimes we users make it too easy for bad actors and leave them the doors open.

because you can use jaxx to shapeshift over tor without an account. I wouldn’t store coins there and I feel for the OP. tracking the btc might be harder because it can be spent straight away on a darkmarket. however zec will normally need to be shifted to another currency (btc generally)

I wouldn’t get your hopes up though, sorry about that.

Just as a tip for future, never use a phone wallet. they are not full computers. for example a good few years back people worked out that android cycled the exact same “random” numbers in the same order every 6 months. quite a bit was stolen just by using the public ledger.

I think I might start a thread about air gaps. using an old laptop/raspberry pi, with no network connection. (yay sapling!)


#11

because you can use jaxx to shapeshift over tor without an account.

This is even worse. You’re using a custodial wallet because of the privacy afforded?


#12

I don’t store any funds in the wallet, Im sure my internet privacy is okay when doing this sort of thing.

Why is this worse? sure correlation attacks are a possibility but their are ways around that.

Can you please outline what is wrong with using jaxx in this manner? I don’t want to give shapeshift a copy of my passport or drivers licence (neither are compulsory in the uk, so what am I supposed to do?)

Can you link to a site where I can convert Zec or Monero without KYC please. It would help me out a lot,


#13

Is Trezor good choose for my new wallet? Can I mining to trezor or better to use hot wallet and transfer to trezor once at a week?

I never didn’t use shapeshift because we have local exchange in country what work with several crypto including zCash ofc.


#14

I don’t know about the Trezor what version is it?

What I do is use an old dual core laptop with the actual official or as near as installed. (winzec,
btc core, Litecoin core, and a very old namecoin core.)

It all depends on how often you need access to the funds and you risk model.


#15

You can mine to it you just need to set the payout to at least every 2-3 days.


#16

Would ZEC to BTC and than to Monero help you has well?
