Zcash Mac client Question (swing wallet)

Hi Guys,

I want to keep the best protection to my wallet. I see that there is a possibility to backup (will do that to a USB drive).

I also see in the main window after the wallet.dat path a mention of Not Encrypted.

Is there a way to encrypt the dat file? And if so, how do I do this? Will be much more safe.


Encryption of the wallet.dat file is disabled right now in zcash because of how shielded z-addrs work, it IS going to be enabled at some point, and work on the internals of that has started, but now sure what release its going to be in.

Yes I’d backup your wallet, either through the GUI or shutdown zcash and backup the file
/Library/Application Support/Zcash/wallet.dat
