(Analysis from Android review)
Defiant allows you to secure, manage, and exchange cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and much more from a easy-to-use wallet that puts you in control of your assets.
Here’s why Defiant is unique:
YOUR KEYS, YOUR CONTROL Defiant is a self-custodial wallet. Only you can access your assets. Your keys and crypto always stay in your control.
When we installed the app, it first asked to create a pin. Then it asked whether we wanted to “Import” or “Create a Wallet”. We chose create a wallet, then we were given a 12-word backup.
There was no mention that the project was open source. In the case that we may have missed something, we tried searching for Defiant app’s appID ‘ar.com.andinassmart.defiant’ on Github, but it yielded 0 repositories. We also tried searching for ‘Defiant App’ with 2 unrelated repositories.
We have to conclude that this is not an open source project. If the source code is not publicly available, then the app cannot be verified.

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.
