How to Hide Your Balance in the Tangem App

Concealing your balance adds more privacy, preventing others from inadvertently viewing your financial information. In crowded areas, hiding your balance can protect you against potential shoulder surfers who may try to glimpse your wallet details. 

It also helps prevent others from making assumptions or judgments based on your financial situation. In this short guide, we'll walk you through the process of hiding your balance in Tangem Wallet.

How to hide/show your portfolio balance in Tangem Wallet

  1. Open the Tangem app.
  2. Tap the three dots at the upper-right corner of the homepage.
  3. Tap App settings.
  4. Enable Flip-to-Hide Balances.

Whenever you flip your device screen downwards, your portfolio's balance will be hidden or displayed.

How the hidden balance feature works

Android and iOS devices have built-in motion detectors — accelerometer and gyroscope sensors — allowing developers to capture motion on a three-dimensional axis. This feature enables the detection of various user motions, such as tilting the phone, shaking it back and forth, and rotating it in a circular fashion.

When building our new app, we harnessed these sensors to bring you this cool feature. Now you can quickly hide your portfolio's worth at a moment's notice.
