What and Why of Safelisting?

  • Safelisting is defined as the list of approved/allowed participants in the address book who are deemed to be trustworthy.

  • At Vauld, safelisting relates to withdrawal addresses and bank accounts. It refers to a list of cryptocurrency addresses and bank accounts that you define as trustworthy. Once enabled, you would only be able to withdraw assets from your Vauld account to the addresses that were previously safelisted.

  • Safelisting provides an extra layer of security in the case a third party has accessed your account. The party is restricted from withdrawing assets to an undesired wallet address or account.
