Will I ever need to share my Secret Recovery Phrase on Foundation?

No. Foundation or anyone who claims to be a part of the Foundation team will never ask you for your Secret Recovery Phrase. Your Secret Recovery Phrase should always be kept private. If you come across a phishing website, or any other website asking for your Secret Recovery Phrase you should close out of it immediately.


If you come across any fraudulent websites posing as Foundation, please report them to trust@foundation.app
