Help spread awareness for build reproducibility

Please help us spread the word discussing build reproducibility with FreeWallet  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.

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 

Update 2021-10-12: This app is not available anymore.

In the description we can read:

Secure
Wallet Passphrase & private keys never leave device

and

FreeWallet is an open source mobile wallet which supports Bitcoin.

so it’s a non-custodial, open source Bitcoin wallet but can we verify the claims?

On their website we find a link to their GitHub and from their to the mobile wallet’s repository. There we find no claims of reproducibility and not even build instructions, so this app is not verifiable.

Verdict Explained

This product went out of business ... or so. Read the analysis for details.

As part of our Methodology, we ask:

Is the product still supported by the still existing provider? If not, we tag it Defunct! 

Discontinued products or worse, products of providers that are not active anymore, are problematic, especially if they were not formerly reproducible and well audited to be self-custodial following open standards. If the provider hasn’t answered inquiries for a year but their server is still running or similar circumstances might get this verdict, too.
