MyEtherWallet cryptocurrency tool for creating wallets will launch its new MEW Connect mobile application to improve user security.

The beta version of is iOS-based application will go in public in the near future, while the Android-based version to be launched in late September. Approximately at the same time, the application is scheduled to be launched in full scale. As the project team expects, market demand for the application will be high due to the fact that every day the website of MyEtherWallet is visited by 600 000 users.

The main feature of MEW Connect will be access to the wallet without typing private key, but by scanning the QR code on the site and gaining access through p2p data transfer. Using this technology, customers will receive additional protection against phishing attacks, which resulted in large amounts of cryptocurrencies worth approximately $7.57 million stolen from MEW and its fork service MyCrypto. MyEtherWallet will use the Apple programming interface as a cryptographic protection application.

In the near future, the code of MEW applications on iOS and Android is planned to be posted openly for comments and requests from developers and community.

Earlier, MyCrypto also refused to use private keys in order to strengthen users' funds protection.
