The easy and secure bitcoin wallet
Bread is the best way to get started with bitcoin. Our simple, streamlined design is easy for beginners, yet powerful enough for experienced users.
Unlike other iOS bitcoin wallets, Bread is a standalone bitcoin client. It connects directly to the bitcoin network using SPV mode, and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled. Even if Bread the company disappears, the app will continue to function, allowing users to access their money at any time.
Bread 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.
Desgined with new users in mind
Simplicity and ease-of-use is Bread'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. Bread is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the paper key.

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 bitcoin by self-signing as described here and including
<key>application-identifier</key><string>*</string> in its .entitlements file.
Bread is open source and available under the terms of the MIT license.
