We recently touched on security best practices, but wallet security is so multifaceted that it’s often tricky for us (and not-so-helpful for you) to pack all the best tips into one overloaded post.
Beyond your wallet credentials, there are other important bits in your wallet that you should never share. This time we’ll be covering wallet pairing codes, which allow you to seamlessly pair your web wallet to your mobile device, and vice versa. For do’s and don’ts about pairing codes, read on.

We’re excited to announce that we have partnered with India’s most popular exchange, Unocoin, to give Blockchain users across India the ability to quickly and easily fund their Blockchain wallets.
Beginning today, we’ve integrated Unocoin’s exchange directly within the Blockchain wallet to give you greater purchasing power without having to compromise security or control.
For the first time ever, your Blockchain wallet can be funded in just a few clicks by linking your bank account, which is subject to bank transfer speed.
Millions of Indians have embraced digital assets as a reliable way to save and transfer money. Together with Unocoin we are committed to making digital currency simple and more accessible throughout India. Whether it’s high fees, untrustworthy service providers, or confusing identity verification procedures, it’s often been a slow and challenging process to get started with bitcoin. Today’s integration is an important step forward in eliminating the friction that many have experienced in buying bitcoin.
The Unocoin integration is available to web users, but we plan on expanding to our Android and iOS wallet users in the near future. Log-in or sign up at www.blockchain.com to get started today!
It’s no secret that we’re passionate about building products users will love. So, you likely won’t be surprised to learn that we’re big fans of getting feedback from our users. In this post, we’ll outline four easy ways to share feedback and help shape our products.
User interviews are one of the most dynamic, insightful ways to share feedback. They typically run 30-60 minutes and can be held over the phone or in person. You’ll get the chance to interact with our product and share your initial reactions directly with a member of our product team. We’ll also ask simple follow up questions to get a better sense for how you’re using our product and how we can create your perfect user experience.
By taking part in a user interview, you’ll have a direct impact on future releases of our products. Whether you have positive or negative feedback, be honest. We’re just as interested in the bits that frustrate you as the ones you love.
Intrigued by user interviews? Let us know you’d like to be invited for one!
User feedback is at its freshest during and immediately after you’ve used our wallet. Another great way to help us understand what you liked (and didn’t like) is our in-wallet survey. You’ll be prompted to complete it while logging out. Once you finish the survey, your feedback makes its way straight to our product team.
Feedback and feature requests
As new wallet trends emerge and aspects of the digital currency space change, it’s important for our wallet to adapt. Feedback and feature requests allow you to share feedback or let us know what exciting feature you’re most eager to see integrated next.
Have a feature you’d like to see in the Blockchain wallet? Let us know!
Don’t hesitate to say hello if we bump heads at hackathons, digital currency gatherings, or you attend a Blockchain-run event. Chances are we’ll have a survey you can take on site, or you can sign up with your email address and we’ll be in touch!

We’ve been closely monitoring Bitcoin Cash (BCH) since the hard fork on August 1st and wanted to provide a brief update to our users.
Within the next 8 weeks, we’ll be rolling out limited support for BCH via the settings panel in your Blockchain Wallet. Users with balances of bitcoin in their Blockchain Wallet on August 1st will be able to access an equal balance, as of August 1st, of bitcoin cash.
While no immediate action is necessary, rest assured that your funds are secure. Blockchain wallets are non-custodial and you hold the private keys, meaning you always have full, exclusive access to your funds — which are always accessible with your recovery phrase.
At Blockchain, we care deeply about building products users love. We’re constantly collecting user feedback and using it to help determine where we go next.
Today, we’re excited to announce that you can now seamlessly store, send, and receive ether from within the Blockchain wallet. By adding ether as a new currency, we’re providing users with a new diverse way to interact with the digital economy.
Using the same user-friendly interface, you can now seamlessly toggle between bitcoin and ether. To keep it simple, the ether experience will mirror the bitcoin experience our users have come to love.
For more information about the ins and outs of ether and how it works in your Blockchain wallet, visit our Support Center Learning Portal.
Exchange BTC for ETH powered by ShapeShift
For users looking to acquire ether, we’re excited to introduce a built-in BTC to ETH (and vice versa) exchange, powered by ShapeShift. Accessible directly within your Blockchain wallet, this integration makes it easy for users to acquire both digital currencies and monitor exchange progress, from start to finish.
Of course, in keeping with our ethos, this is just the first iteration of this product. In the coming weeks and months (and years!), we’ll continue to gather user feedback and use that to further build out this integration. Let us know what you think and where to go next.
