Is it a good idea to always check our uWallet's private information?

Something comes to my mind since there's a backup seed phrase and private key to secure the CRP coin or UUSD we have inside our uWallet.
My question is. Is it a good idea to always check our uWallet's private information?

It's good to always check all information on your wallet, I have not gotten any wallet without doing a complete check on all information it holds.

Accessing private wallet information, especially on unsecured or compromised devices, exposes sensitive data to potential theft or unauthorized access. Malware, phishing attacks, or insecure networks can compromise security.

You are right mate, frequent checking of wallet balances or transaction history may compromise user privacy. Others could observe or track wallet activity, impacting confidentiality.

Well it's not a good thing checking anyone's private information, it's not something I would ever support and I think it's definitely wrong.

Frequent checking of private information may make you more susceptible to phishing attacks, where attackers attempt to deceive you into providing sensitive information through fake websites or emails.

Accessing your private information, such as your wallet balance or transaction history, on public or unsecured networks increases the risk of interception by hackers or malicious actors.

Accessing private information in public settings increases the risk of shoulder surfing, where someone nearby can observe your screen and potentially capture sensitive data such as passwords, personal messages, or financial information.

Using public Wi-Fi networks to access private information can expose you to security risks. Public networks are often less secure, making it easier for attackers to intercept your data through man-in-the-middle attacks.

You are right mate, When using public Wi-Fi, your data can be intercepted by attackers through man-in-the-middle attacks, where they position themselves between you and the network to capture sensitive information.

To mitigate risks when using public Wi-Fi, use a virtual private network (VPN) to encrypt your data, avoid accessing sensitive information, and ensure your device’s firewall and antivirus software are up to date.
