Blockchain security firm alerts crypto users about Stepn phishing sites.

Popular blockchain security firm, Peckshield, has revealed that there are now several phishing sites for the Web3 lifestyle app (Stepn). According to Peckshield, hackers insert a fake metamask browser extension through which they can steal seed phrases of unsuspecting Stepn users.

Once these hackers steal the seed phrase, they have full access to the Stepn user’s dashboard, where they can link the hacked wallets to their wallets or “claim” a giveaway.


Peckshield has asked Stepn users to contact support immediately if they notice anything fishy about their accounts. Some users reported that they had experienced some flaws, contacted support, and resolved the issue.

The popular China-based crypto journalist, Wu Blockchain, also tweeted about it to give the news wider publicity.


No news from Stepn’s Twitter channel yet

However, Stepn is yet to acknowledge the hack or release any official statement about it. The notice of the hack comes nearly 20 hours after the Web3 lifestyle app concluded its AMA Twitter spaces. Peckshield is one of the trusted Twitter channels where the crypto community gets to have first-hand information about hacks or phishing scams.
