  2. if I open GUI wallet in simple mode and use remote node with imported seed, can anyone see which wallet is being opened?

1 Answer 1

  1. No. Unless they have some kind of access to your local machine of course.
  2. No.

The issue main issue with using a remote node is the operator can log (and associate), your IP address to your transaction(s). That and you're trusting they serve up valid blockchain data.
