Archos Safe-T Touch
Our wallet review process
We examine wallets starting at the code level and continue all the way up to the finished app that lives on your device. Provided below is an outline of each of these steps along with security tips for you and general test results.
Application build test result
After not so much success reviewing its predecessor, we have little hope to get to a better verdict here.
In fact … here is their companion app, with +5k downloads and a single, negative and rather verifiable review:
★☆☆☆☆ 20 March 2021
This unethical company is still selling this piece of * even though they know they don’t provide any software updates and what they currently have is so bad and outdated that make their hardware useless. No third party option either. Total scam.
This companion app was last updated 2019-12-18, almost two years ago as of now.
The firmware is available as download:
Download firmware v1.2.5 for your ARCHOS SafeT touch (Windows compatible only)
but without a date and as it’s “Windows only” and named “Upgrader”, it’s not actually the firmware you get there neither.
Between “stale”, “obsolete” or “closed source”, we go with the latter verdict and conclude this product is not verifiable.
Do your own research
In addition to reading our analysis, it is important to do your own checks. Before transferring any bitcoin to your wallet, look up reviews for the wallet you want to use. They should be easy to find. If they aren't, that itself is a reason to be extra careful.
