Hive Signer Tutorial

What is Hive Signer?

Hivesigner allows you to sign transactions in the most secure way, ensuring that the applications you are using won't have direct access to your private keys while allowing you to perform actions within defined scopes.


It works similarly to the Hive Keychain wallet, but other Hive tools use this verification instead of using Keychain.


Unlike Hive Keychain approvals, which require your approval every time you perform a transaction, Hive Signer will perform specific actions for you from time to time without bothering you to approve every action you make.


Is it safe to use Hive Signer?


The goal of Hivesigner is to provide a secure way of connecting to the blockchain via third-party apps without compromising the security of your private keys and passwords. It's a simple identity layer built on top of the blockchain, allowing users safe access and developers the freedom of not having to handle the authentication system, i.e., managing users' private keys and encryption. This means that developers won't have to open-source their projects to gain user trust. When connecting to apps in this manner, neither Hivesigner nor the authorized app stores the private keys, as the posting key is encrypted in your cookie.
