  • Strong Default Protection with BIP 32, BIP 44, BIP 49, BIP84 and BIP 39

    Samourai enforces a BIP 39 passphrase encryption on wallet creation, hardening the security of your wallet right out of the gate.

  • Secure PIN Login

Privacy



Samourai has a deep rooted commitment to the belief in the importance of transactional privacy and strive to create the most private bitcoin wallet.

Features
  • No address reuse

    Samourai never reuses addresses, never leaking valuable metadata about you and your purchase habits.

    Samourai will alert you if you have sent to an address before, helping prevent unintentional address reuse.

  • Clustering Analysis Protection with STONEWALL

    Samourai provides by default a transaction that increases the difficulty of linking inputs to outputs of a transaction, making clustering wallet addresses and associated metadata more difficult.

  • High Entropy Transactions

    Samourai transactions with STONEWALL enabled produce much higher entropy than standard bitcoin transactions and often resemble CoinJoin transactions on the blockchain.

  • Avoid linking previous change outputs

    Samourai parses all previous transactions before building a new transaction to make sure it isn't leaking valuable metadata about your and your wallet

  • Tor and VPN Support

    Samourai is enabled with Tor and VPN support allowing you the ability to route all transactions through an anonymous IP address.

  • Custom Miner Fees

    Optionally, set your own custom miner fee on a per transaction basis.

  • Replace By Fee (RBF)
