Azara Crypto & Bitcoin WalletApp Store
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
Azara is a crypto wallet that is enabling you crypto exchange, as well as the possibility to sell and buy crypto. With this app, you can do all of this with Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), Dash (DSH), Monero (XMR), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Zcash (ZEC).
So it is a wallet for Bitcoin but is it self-custodial? On Security they say:
- Security. Our application is protected from external threats, and two-factor authentication will allow you not to think about the safety of your funds.
which doesn’t say much.
On their FAQ we read:
Can I use Azara Wallet without the app?
Sure. You need to go to the azara.ai website, enter your credentials or register and then you will have full access to all the functionality of the application.
which sounds like the keys are not exclusively on your phone. This functionality looks very much like a custodial offering which makes this app 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.
