⚠️ Be safe out there! When creating your wallet, never save your private keys in an insecure place, and never share them. Think of your private keys like the key to a digital safe deposit box: if someone gets the key, they can steal everything in your wallet. You are solely responsible for protecting your keys. Tellie will never ask you for your private keys.
