Quickly Move Your Items to a Clean Wallet
⚠️ If you believe your wallet is compromised, the best action is to immediately move your items in your wallet to a non-compromised wallet. Some of our users do this directly by using tools and apps like Etherscan and wallets like MetaMask.
Mark Your OpenSea Account as Compromised
If you are unable to quickly move your items to a new wallet, we’ve rolled out a feature on OpenSea to help users who believe their wallets have been compromised. We’ll walk you step-by-step on how to use the feature below.
This action will mark your account (which is associated with your wallet address) as compromised and disable NFTs in your wallet from being bought, sold, or transferred using OpenSea. Marking your account as compromised (even if you’ve safely moved your items to a new wallet) will also help notify other OpenSea users that the account has been marked compromised, letting them know they may not want to transact with the account.
However, it’s important to remember that OpenSea does not have custody of your NFTs at any point in time (the NFTs live on the blockchain, not in OpenSea’s systems). This means that marking your account as compromised will also not prevent your NFTs from being moved using other platforms or tools outside of OpenSea.
Securing your Account
To get started, hover your mouse over your account profile picture and click on "Settings" in the dropdown menu.
But if you believe your account has been compromised, you can select the “Help with a compromised account” option in the Account Support menu. After you select this option, you will be asked to let us know what the reason is. There are three options (see below).
