Envoy Wallet v1.1.3: Standalone Wallet Functionality, Magic Backups

“We’re thrilled to announce a groundbreaking release of Envoy, our mobile companion app for Passport. This new update transforms Envoy into a standalone Bitcoin mobile wallet with powerful account management and privacy features.””Not a Passport owner? This update introduces full Bitcoin wallet functionality on your iOS or Android phone. Use Envoy to store and spend your Bitcoin with strong security, privacy via Tor, and a streamlined setup experience.””As a reminder, this is a hot wallet for spending on the go, not storing your life savings! For more security, we’ve engineered Passport from the ground up to be hyper-secure, airgapped, yet still easy to use and perfectly compatible with Envoy.””Envoy introduces a new seed-less onboarding experience called Magic Backups.””While Envoy users can of course manually handle seed words if desired, we aimed to engineer a solution that enables 60-second onboarding and automatic encrypted backups of Envoy’s private key and application data (such as settings and labels), with a full restore taking just two taps.””Additionally, we wanted to ensure that Envoy does this without collecting any user data – no email address, no passwords, no IP address (with Tor is enabled) – no friction!”
