Encrypt your secrets visually.
Like other encryption methods, two factors allow the creation of redundancy while minimizing risk of compromise due to physical access.
Differently to usual encryption methods, the secret can be decrypted optically – without a computer or any special knowledge. This makes it specially useful for bitcoin cold storage and inheritance planning.
To encrypt your valuable passphrases, wallets seed, or any alphanumerical secret, generate a new Revealer in the software, or type the code of a existing Revealer.
Revealer Plugin comes with the Electrum Bitcoin Wallet.
Electrum was the first wallet to introduce a seed phrase concept (2011) and is one of the most advanced, flexible and simple to use Bitcoin wallet available. We are proud partners of Electrum and a percentage of our products sale goes to Electrum Technologies.
If you are running version Electrum 3.2 or newer you can activate the Revealer Plugin at ‘Tools-> Plugins’. Download electrum only from the official website https://electrum.org .
Export a visually encrypted backup directly from your Ledger hardware wallet
You can type a revealer code in the Ledger Nano S and it will export the seed encrypted for that code. In this case, it is strongly recommended that you use a Revealer that was *not* generated on the computer receiving the encrypted seed.
