Verify the authentic AlphaWallet app, from alphawallet.com

wallet which pioneered TokenScript. If you transfer your cryptocurrency into that wallet, we do not know what will happen to your funds.
We are reaching out to AppStore. In the meanwhile advise that:
It is safest to get AlphaWallet via links on the front page of alphawallet.com
AlphaWallet is an opensource wallet product with dozens of forks. This “other” wallet that uses the same name is not one of the forks.
We also noticed that this other “AlphaWallet” app has a password
login. We never use password login, since, as a wallet maker, we use public-key authentication when our users need to access web services. Indeed, we suggest users categorically avoid wallet products that ask
for a login password. Because:
- A password is an insufficient method to protect your crypto.
- A wallet is a key holding device. Therefore, it can authenticate in a more secure manner than passwords all by itself.
We will follow up promptly in the next few days on our dealing with AppStore.
