Do your own research!
Try out searching for "lost bitcoins", "stole my money" or "scammers" together with the wallet's name, even if you think the wallet is generally trustworthy. For all the bigger wallets you will find accusations. Make sure you understand why they were made and if you are comfortable with the provider's reaction.
The Analysis ¶
Update 2021-06-02: As for our review a month ago, the provider website was already offline, we assume the store listing being gone now is a permanent thing and thus file the app as defunct.
There is a clear statement on the Play store about private key management.
Citowise is one of the few wallets that is both safe and decentralized as it does not keep private user keys.
With keys in control of the user, we need to find the source code in order to check reproducibility. However we are unable to locate a public source repository.
Unfortunately we were not able to load the main providers website, receiving a 404 response. After several attempts we can only concluded this wallet may not be supported anymore with a defunct provider.
Our verdict: As there is no source code to be found anywhere, this wallet is at best a non-custodial closed source wallet and as such not verifiable.
This app went out of business ... or so. Read the analysis for details.
As part of our Methodology, we ask:Is the product still supported by the still existing provider? If not, we tag it
Discontinued products or worse, products of providers that are not active anymore, are problematic, especially if they were not formerly reproducible and well audited to be self-custodial following open standards. If the provider hasn’t answered inquiries for a year but their server is still running or similar circumstances might get this verdict, too.
