Additional resources are available from WAX affiliated companies and others, including those listed at https://dappradar.com/rankings/protocol/wax. We do not control your relationships with third parties, including our partners and any third party websites or applications to which we or others provide links. Please check their platforms, websites and applications for information on how they handle your personal information.
In order for the WAX blockchain to work in the secure and transparent manner as intended, it is essential that there be a publicly accessible record of the history of all sales, trades and transfers of a digital item. This means that certain data, such as your anonymized WAX blockchain account name, cannot be removed once it is part of the permanent record. This is true for all blockchains, not just WAX. That’s how blockchains work. However, if you delete, transfer or close all of your WAX accounts, then your anonymized account name should no longer be publicly associated with you, unless you identify it in any of your own posts or communications with others.
The WAX blockchain was built to be secure, but any security system is only as strong as its weakest link. Please use the strongest available security options for all of your WAX accounts and for any other accounts, including social media accounts if you may use them to sign up for, or sign in to, a WAX account or a third party website or service. This often means using two-factor authentication. However, just as new threats to security evolve, so do new defenses. We recommend that you frequently check to see the latest and greatest security options available to you -- and use them.
