Revoking token allowances or smart contracts access to your funds

  • Updated
On Solana blockchain sometimes scammers ask users to approve malicious transactions to delegate ownership of the ATAs (sub-addresses used to store a specific token) to them. This way they can drain your funds even after the malicious dApp is disconnected in the app.

We strongly recommend that you create a new wallet with a new recovery phrase and transfer all remaining assets to the new wallet, then stop using the compromised wallet. Remember to download only from the official website https://phantom.app
