There are some known areas for improvement:

  • This app depends upon related libraries that it uses. There may be bugs.
  • This wallet currently only supports transacting between shielded addresses, which makes it incompatible with wallets that do not support sending to shielded addresses.
  • Traffic analysis, like in other cryptocurrency wallets, can leak some privacy of the user.
  • The wallet requires a trust in the lighthttpd server to display accurate transaction information.
  • This app has been developed and run exclusively on mainnet it might not work on testnet.

See the Wallet App Threat Model for more information about the security and privacy limitations of the wallet.
