Easy and secure

Litewallet is the best way to get started with Litecoin. Our simple, streamlined design is easy for beginners, yet powerful enough for experienced users. This is a free app produced by the Litecoin Foundation.

Donations

The Litewallet Team is a group of global volunteers & part of the Litecoin Foundation that work hard to promote the use of Litecoin. Litewallet takes alot of time and resources to improve and test features but we need your help. Please consider donating to one of our addresses:

Completely decentralized

Unlike other iOS Litecoin wallets, Litewallet is a standalone Litecoin client. It connects directly to the Litecoin network using SPV mode, and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled. Even if Litewallet is removed from the App Store, the app will continue to function, allowing users to access their valuable Litecoin at any time.

Cutting-edge security

Litewallet utilizes AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and the latest iOS security features to protect users from malware, browser security holes, and even physical theft. Private keys are stored only in the secure enclave of the user's phone, inaccessible to anyone other than the user.

Designed with new users in mind

Simplicity and ease-of-use is Litewallet's core design principle. A simple recovery phrase (which we call a paper key) is all that is needed to restore the user's wallet if they ever lose or replace their device. Litewallet is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the paper key.

Litewallet Development:

Building & Developing Litewallet for iOS:

Installation on jailbroken devices is strongly discouraged.

Any jailbreak app can grant itself access to every other app's keychain data. This means it can access your wallet and steal your Litecoin by self-signing as described here and including <key>application-identifier</key><string>*</string> in its .entitlements file.
