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.

If you find something we should include, you can create an issue or edit this analysis yourself and create a merge request for your changes.

The Analysis 

In their description we read:

You, as owner of wallet, fully control the private key:

  • “iWallet”does not store info about users, data about private keys, or funds on servers.
  • Private keys are stored on your device.

so they are non-custodial.

The following is their website in its entirety:

InSense this website is under construction

So, trusting their claim from the Play Store, not finding any further data to verify it, we remain with the verdict: not verifiable.

Verdict Explained

This product did not get updated in over two years.

As part of our Methodology, we ask:

Was the product updated during the last two years? If not, we tag it Obsolete! 

Bitcoin wallets are complex products and Bitcoin is a new, advancing technolgy. Projects that don’t get updated in a long time are probably not well maintained. It is questionable if the provider even has staff at hands that is familiar with the product, should issues arise.

This verdict may not get applied if the provider is active and expresses good reasons for not updating the product.
