Scammers steal $100,000+ of EOS. Here is how you can secure your EOS account!
Recently, scammers have been tricking users into signing transactions that are not what the user thinks it is. For example, having the user sign an “update auth” transaction which changes their keys when the user really thinks he is claiming some Telos tokens. I go into how to secure your EOS account to make sure you are safe from this happening to you, and how to have a backup system in place so that even if you do accidentally sign the wrong transaction, you can still recover your account.
Here are examples of thefts of EOS:
