Keeping Your Account Safe
Never give out the secret recovery phrase (what we use to call the seed phrase). The secret recovery phrase is the 12 English words given to you by Ronin when you create your wallet.
Never send it to anyone and never enter it on any website.
If someone asks you for your secret recovery phrase, they are a scammer. Axie will never ask you for your secret recovery phrase OR your Ronin password. We never need them.
Your Ronin Password Does Not Prevent Access to Your Account
Access to your Ronin wallet is protected by keeping your secret recovery phrase (seed phrase) secure. An attacker only needs the secret recovery phrase to gift your Axies or withdraw funds from your wallet. You must keep it safe, never give it to anyone and never enter it on any website.
Once a secret recovery phrase is compromised, it is always compromised! Changing your Ronin password will not secure the wallet. If the secret recovery phrase is compromised, please make a new Ronin wallet and move your assets to it as soon as possible.
There are a number of very convincing scams, never give your seed phrase to anyone and never enter it into any site.
Below is a list of common scams
- Fake ronin wallet: These websites let you generate a secret recovery phrase (seed phrase), but they also share it with the scammer. The scammer watches your wallet and then steals your assets.
- Fake ronin wallet app: These fake apps are published on the Google play store.
- To avoid this scam, do not install mobile ronin apps as they are not real. We do not have a mobile version of ronin.
- Fake giveaway or award sites: These sites claim you have won a mystic axie, SLP, AXS, or other highly valued items. When connecting your wallet the scam site will ask for you to approve transfers of funds. The scammers then send away your assets.
- To avoid this scam, never visit any fake giveaway or award sites. Any giveaways will be announced on official Axie Infinity social media channels.
- Fake twitch streams: These twitch channels will replay an old Axie Infinity stream. The scammers will have bots connect to make it seem like people are chatting. They then announce a giveaway, which leads to the above bullet point.
- To avoid this scam, always confirm you are on the official Axie Infinity Twitch Channel.
- Fake Support Agents in Discord: Scammers will join the Discord and act as support agents. They will ask you to visit a site that requests your seed phrase. The site will send the attacker your secret recovery phrase (seed phrase).
- To avoid this scam, never enter your secret recovery phrase into any website or share it with anyone. If someone sends you a message claiming to be axie support, it is a scam.
