MyEtherWallet launches MEWconnect, the mobile app for more secure logins

Following TechCrunch's story related to MyEtherWallet (MEW) announcing two months ago that the MEW beta release of their upcoming mobile app to ensure a more secure and easier way to login to peoples accounts was open. Finally they have officially announced the release of the mobile app. 

MEW announced the official launch of the iOS app which can now be downloaded from the app store

MEWconnect will allow users to login to MEW without typing their private key, something users can do on the Ledger and Trezor hardware wallets. The benefit of this means users do not have to input their private keys into the website. This will remove the ability for phishing attacks and theft of private keys from users. 

The app is free to all users of MyEtherWallet.com, which sees upwards of 600,000 visitors each day. 

MyEtherWallet founder Kosala Hemachandra told TechCrunch that beyond enabling a secure connection for MyEtherWallet.com users, the app could offer features including payments in the future, which could provide a major boost to the crypto industry as it aims to reach more mainstream attention.
