Jaxx Wallet

Jaxx Wallet is a cryptocurrency storage solution originally released by the Canadian company Decentral in 2014. Jaxx is a non-custodial wallet, where users have full control over their own private keys and recovery phrases. Jaxx is available in several forms: mobile wallets for iOS and Android, a web based wallet in the form of a chrome plugin, and desktop wallets for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.

Decentral employs a number of core values that dictate operations, among them are: Being conscious of the present, but driven by the future. Embracing change. Questioning everything; there is a solution to every problem. Changing the way consumers conceptualize and exchange value. The Jaxx wallet prides itself on security, by securing your private keys and recovery phrase with bank-grade encryption.

Again, it is strongly recommended that you verify the recovery phrase in a private location. Anyone who has these 12 words will be able to access the funds in your wallet.
