What is WalletConnect?
From walletconnect.org: “WalletConnect is an open source protocol for connecting decentralized applications to mobile wallets with QR code scanning or deep linking. A user can interact securely with any Dapp from their mobile phone, making WalletConnect wallets a safer choice compared to desktop or browser extension wallets.”
WalletConnect establishes an encrypted connection between your device and the DApp used, in order to make transactions safely because your private key never leaves your device.
About WalletConnect Security
As for hardware wallets, WalletConnect establishes an end-to-end encrypted connection between your Eidoo app and desktop DApps. This method prevents data from being read or modified other than by the true sender and recipient. Because the user is not requested to enter his private keys in third-party services, the funds are never at risk.
