Edge made a conscious decision to restrict our wallet to native mobile applications. Website infrastructures are notoriously difficult to secure as there are many different attack vectors allowing hackers access to users’ credentials.


These include but are not limited to:


* Javascript injection
* Server-side hacks modifying HTML/Javascript
* Fake URL phishing attacks
* Man-in-the-middle attacks
* Rogue browser plug-ins
* Keyboard or screen loggers


Note that with the exception of keyboard or screen loggers, Edge is not susceptible to any of the above attacks. Fully compromised Edge servers or even the network around a user’s device does NOT give an attacker any access to user data or funds. We have carefully designed the client-server architecture with this in mind as we know Bitcoin security is a paramount concern and is critical in achieving mass adoption.
