When you upload a text file, document, or screenshot of your seed phrase to a cloud service, you're securing it behind only one layer of defense -- your password. Most people's passwords aren't great: your kid's name, your favorite sport, or your birthday aren't hard to guess, but it's not your fault! Remembering complicated, impersonal numbers and letters is not what the human mind excels at.
Unfortunately, hackers know this. They also know that most people reuse passwords, which means your Dropbox, Google Drive, or iCloud is likely to have the same password as the easy-to-hack photography blog you frequent. Once they get one password, it's game over. They'll log into your Dropbox, see your seed phrase, and have your crypto assets in no time.
With SeedStash, your seed phrases are encrypted behind 3 layers of security: Face ID, a six-digit passcode, and your chosen emoji. These are easy to remember, but hard to guess, and in the case of Face ID, impossible to bypass without your physical biometrics. So even if hackers get access to your iCloud, all they'll see is a garbled mess, not your seed phrase in plain text.
