Blockchain.info releases its new HD wallet

Announcements | February 12, 2016 By:

Blockchain.info announced release of its new hierarchical deterministic wallet for Android and iOS users.

Blockchain.info said its new wallet adds “enhanced privacy” with the implemented hierarchical deterministic (HD) addresses to avoid address reuse. Address reuse often can take away a user’s privacy because it’s far simpler to determine your identity and location by using the same address multiple times.

The new HD wallet the team says has a “Robust security center! With six simple steps to secure your wallet.” Which includes adding a twelve-word mnemonic recovery phrase if your phone is stolen, lost or damaged.

Blockchain.info is a bitcoin wallet and block explorer service.
