Does Monero have any Android or iOS wallets available? No Monero iOS or Android wallet currently existed in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for a long time with the custodial Freewallet exception related to Bytecoin/Minergate. This wallet has been marked as distrusted by the Monero community in the Monero Reddit wiki: Freewallet – Please read ...

Yes, there are already people running Monero full nodes with Android using GNURoot (which doesn't require a rooted phone, despite its name) as suggested by villabacho. The proof of concept can be tested easily according to the steps listed by binaryFate: Install GNUroot Debian Launch it, and type the following into the terminal: apt-get update && ...

FreeWallet is a third party, closed source wallet associated with Bytecoin and Minergate where you are not in control of your private keys. Therefore the only way to be able to recover your XMR/account is to keep asking them. However it looks like that they are not replying to you. The best way to address this is go to the App and submit a review so other ...

What is the plan for a GUI wallet on all platforms including mobile? The "official" GUI is funded and in active development and getting closer to completion. Open issues can be tracked on GitHub There are some existing mobile wallet options (in beta) with more on the way

With respect to freewallet on iOS, I'd like to add a personal experience. I sent a small amount of XMR to this wallet a few weeks ago and it took 2 days for the wallet to reflect a balance, this despite the transaction being confirmed and written to a block. Only after contacting their support did my XMR magically appear. No explanation or reply was given ...

Web wallet http://mymonero.com is excellent for mobile. Update: MyMonero is zero-trust wallet, no one but you own your private keys. It has responsive markup which fits into any mobile phone. I recommend this web wallet for daily usage.

Basically yes, a wallet has to scan every block in the blockchain to see if any transactions belong to it. When importing an older wallet, it only needs to scan from the last block known to that old wallet, forward. Depending on the age of the wallet this may be much less than the entire blockchain. The new wallet code is much faster now because it can ...

I think initially you will not have a choice of node, but that's more of a question you should ask directly to jaxx. As the wallet is not out yet, we cannot look at it and tell you. Only Jaxx can tell you for sure at this point. Being able to select your node would be a very important option on their wallet for us so I suggest we campaign for that.

You can also build monerod with the Android NDK and run it natively, instead of having to install GNURoot and running the Linux binaries. https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/651un2/monero_v01031_cli_for_android_arm64/

I'll talk about monero-wallet-cli and monero-wallet-gui, since I don't know about other wallets. It does not download the whole blockchain from the daemon. There are two things that get cut out: first, all blocks up to (a little bit before) the wallet creation height are not downloaded at all. second, for those blocks which are downloaded, tx signatures ...

As mentioned in the repo Read Me, Note about Cordova version Apache has recently released Cordova 7.0.0. It was tested, but because it now places plugins into package.json, npm cannot update, as a handful of those plugins do not have package.json files, and npm and yarn (based on current info) cannot install them as deps. So 6.5.0 is the Cordova ...

As already commented before, answers are on the Google Play store page you linked to, e.g.: Currencies: AUD, CHF, CNY, EUR, GBP, JPY, PLN, RUB There's a contact e-mail address on the Google Play Store page: moneroticker@gmail.com. I don't know what permissions it requires, I have no Android device at my disposal to test. Maybe get in touch with the author....

I'd use GNURoot to install and run Linux on your Android device, and then use the Linux version of monerod. This does not require rooting your device.

Coinomi monero dev here! The server maintains a copy of the private view key to scan the chain on behalf of the wallet. However, this view key is not stored persistently, it is only kept in memory. The server only stores the hash of the address/private view key and uses that for maintaining the account inputs and outputs. This works exactly the same way as ...

Given this is a "lightweight" wallet, with a closed-source server, I can say with some degree of certainty they have your private view key on their server (whether stored there or sent between client and server when making transactions or updating the wallet's balance).

Both Cake and Monerujo wallets use the normal c++ simplewallet implementation. That means that all your keys for scanning and spending never leave your device. Thats also true for the view key which is needed to identify transactions that where send to your wallet. Because of that the scanning is done on your wallet. Your device gets all blockheaders and a ...

Monero has two private keys, the private spend key and the private view key. The private spend key is needed for determining whether an output that you own has been spent, creating a key image for when it will be spent, and for signing the transaction. The private view key is needed for determining whether any outputs on the blockchain were sent to your ...

Apologies for the delay! We're having an increased number of incoming support requests due to the recent network events, and while our team is adjusting by working extra hours, there could be some delays with replies. How did you create your account with Freewallet? If you used a phone number, Google+ or Facebook account, you didn't set a password, so ...

I had this issue also. You may need to log in to the app using the mobile sign-in / facebook / google option if you had originally set up your account that way. That worked for me.
