How it looks in your wallet

General settings

Select your preferred language, configure your wallet to display USD or BTC, or adjust your lock screen times.

Notifications

Turn on or off Wallet updates and Transaction statuses.

Utilities

The DAppnet wallet constantly monitors the blockchain and synchs new data with your wallet as soon as it records on the blockchain. If you suspect your wallet balance, transaction, or UTXO status is not up to date, you can always rescan your wallet to sync with the blockchain.
You can withdraw small amounts of Beam from the Beam Community Faucet.
You can view your public offline address that never expires, however, we strongly recommend that public offline addresses be used only for receiving donations or for charity organizations. Your public offline address is traceable and not as secure as creating a new wallet address for every transaction.
You can also display any UTXO's in your wallet and view the current blockchain height.

Privacy

The privacy settings allow users to adjust and add additional security measures to your DAppnet wallet. Users can change their Maximum Anonymity set transactions settings (transaction time, Maximum Anonymity set size), prevent DApps from launching automatically, or make it so they must re-enter their password for every transaction.
The privacy settings also allow users to find their wallet owner key and create a new wallet password.

DApps

DApps automatically run from local server port 34700.

Troubleshooting

Locating your Beam wallet folder is crucial if you wish to save your transaction histories and other metadata between Beam software updates.
The IPFS repository will contain all metadata related to uploaded DApp files and My DApp Store data.
Go to Report a Problem and follow the steps listed, or view them below to contact Beam Technical support:

  2. 2.

  3. 3.

Remember to include which version of Beam you are using (located in top right corner) when contacting Beam tech support.
