SafeMoon Orbital Shield

John on SOS Accessibility

CEO John Karony Tweeted,

"Folks have told me that the #SAFEMOONWALLET is the easiest wallet to use…that was before #ORBITALSHIELD. It’s now even more accessible. Special thank you beta testers for the feedback! Looking forward to full release. #SAFEMOON is the #Evolution!"

Yesterday, the community had the opportunity to sign up to become an Orbital Shield beta tester!

Since, SafeMoon has Tweeted,

"Thank you to everyone who signed up for our expanded BETA testing of #ORBITALSHIELD.🙌 🤖The 1st round of Android sign-ups have been manually added. 🚨We have enabled a limited number of additional Android sign-ups as a thank you for your patience."

  • Resetting the application and logging back in

  • Overall app functionality

  • The stable release version is always recommended for normal use

Advice for Beta Testing

Darkmoon Tim reminded the beta testers,

"Beta testing can be fun but make sure you follow the steps in testflight (iOS) to weed out the bugs. The more testers going through these steps the better the final product will be when released."

Danology answered a common question from beta testers:

"'How do I submit a support ticket if I've found an issue with #OrbitalShield?'

Head to the settings tab and click the 'Zendesk Support' icon."

Vico added,

"Very simple. Then click on the "message" bubble icon, type your message and click the Send button. (See images below)"


"So let me get this straight. On top of #OrbitalShield we have 2 Layer security, biometrics,2 Factor Authentication, Google Authenticator, Authentication for Transactions AND Usename, Password and Security Questions. Hmmm I feel pretty safe."

The team is killing it and this is only the first product in the stack!"

- Adam Root

"Innovation takes time, especially when it has to do with security for global users across multiple platforms and chains. Now more than ever, security takes precedence and it will be a differentiator in DeFi."

"Security is everything! They will not be able to transfer money out of ur SFM wallet without ur authorization. Even if u lost ur phone, and if they guessed your login info that will NOT impact ur seed phrases. A lost phone will not authorize a transfer."

- Vico

"'Security (safety), quality and accessibility.' - @CptHodl Security is needed for sure but what about combine it with accessibility factor? Accessibility and ease of use play very important role in adoption"

- Picipici

@Safemoon & @CptHodl Really impressed and blown away with Orbital Shield capabilities and running as a micro service in Safemoon Wallet, I’ve not been able to break it so far #Safemoon #SafemoonArmy

- Krypto Magnus

"When interacting with iPhones app switcher Safemoon Wallet switches to a page take over in black with OBS branding rather than showing wallet balances! Neat if you happen to swipe to app switcher when someone looks over your shoulder #Safemoon #SafemoonArmy #ORBITALSHIELD"

- Krypto Magnus

Why Is SafeMoon Orbital Shield Important?

Community member SBaby shares thoughts in a Twitter thread.

"For everyone wondering 'WHY IS ORBITAL SHIELD SO SPECIAL?' and for those who even go as far as to say it's nothing special... THIS THREAD IS FOR YOU. 🧵🧵🧵🧵 Not storing personal information IS ABSOLUTELY HUGE. The biggest companies that you know have experienced recent large-scale data breaches that put their users' personal information in the wrong hands. Let's start with the one you're using right now.


'Date: July 2022

Impact: 5.4 million

Summary: In July 2022, an attacker compiled information from 5.4 million Twitter users due to a now-corrected system vulnerability. The attacker stole email addresses and phone numbers and connected them to user accounts. Twitter maintained that no passwords were stolen but urged all Twitter users to use two-factor authentication for their accounts.'


Date: March 2021

Impact: 533,000,000 user records

Summary: Hackers scraped Facebook due to a security gap that the company had patched back in 2019. As a result, 533,000,000 user records from 106 countries were posted on a hacking forum. The leaked information included user locations, full names, biographical information, phone numbers, and email addresses. This information was discovered when a user in the hacking forum promoted an automated scraping bot that could extract phone numbers for hundreds of millions of Facebook users.


Date: October to December 2018

Impact: 500,000 Google+ accounts

Summary: When Google decided to shut down its Google+ social network in October 2018, they discovered a bug in the Google+ API that let developers access private data. Google said there was no evidence that hackers had exploited this bug, but over 400 applications used this bug. This meant that up to 500,000 accounts were potentially affected.

Penalties: Users filed two class actions in 2018 that later consolidated into one, and in January 2020, Google agreed to a $7.5 million settlement that allowed all users with Google+ accounts between January 2015 and April 2, 2019, whose private information was exposed to receive $5 to $12 each.


Date: December 2019

Impact: 250,000,000 records

Summary: Two hundred fifty million customer records spanning 14 years were exposed without password protection. The information contained customer email addresses, geographical locations, descriptions of the support claims and customer service case, customer email addresses, and more. The database started being exposed on December 5, 2019, due to a hiccup in security rules and was fixed on December 31, 2019.


Date: May 2021

Impact: 13,124,962 user records

Summary: An unclaimed and unprotected ElasticSearch database exposed more than 13 million records. These records included the personal data of people willing to provide fake reviews in return for free items from Amazon vendors. Specifically, these records included email addresses and Telegram and WhatsApp phone numbers. In addition, information related to the vendors was also exp
