Help spread awareness for build reproducibility

Please help us spread the word, asking Bridge Wallet to support reproducible builds via their Twitter!

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

On Google Play they claim

YOU ARE IN CONTROL
Bridge Wallet is a decentralized, non-custodial wallet. It means that you are in full control of your wallet, its content and seed phrase.

But while the provider has a GitHub presence, there is no claim about public source and neither do we find any wallet repository on their GitHub.

As a closed source wallet, this is not verifiable.

Verdict Explained

No source code found
Without public source available, this app cannot be verified!

This verdict means that we could not find any source to compile the app from. Internally the company might do everything right but as we can't verify it, there is nothing protecting the user from an exit-scam where the provider releases an app that leaks the keys to the servers.

The app cannot be independently verified. If the provider puts your funds at risk on purpose or by accident, you will probably not know about the issue before people start losing money. If the provider is more criminally inclined he might have collected all the backups of all the wallets, ready to be emptied at the press of a button. The app might have a formidable track record but out of distress or change in management turns out to be evil from some point on, with nobody outside ever knowing before it is too late.
