How do I use the Debug function on Freewallet?

To access the Debug feature, simply click on the logo on the upper left to see the “About Freewallet” popup. From here you can use the “Debug” button to see more in-depth details on the functions and errors when using Freewallet.

This is especially helpful information for Developers when submitting tickets on the Freewallet Desktop Issues page as well as the Counterparty-core issues page on Github.

  • The console never reveals private keys, or passphrases. So there is no risk of your funds being stolen simply from sharing a screenshot of Debug information.

  • Unsigned transactions in the console are transactions that are not yet signed by your wallet address, so they are entirely fine to share. All that could be exposed is your transaction details, which is common to share anyway when running into a possible issue.

  • Signed transactions in the console only authorize that one transaction, not other/future transactions, so they are also entirely fine to share. All that could be exposed is your transaction details, which again is common to share when issues arise.

  • Sharing screenshots and debug info publicly is safer than accepting support via DMs. Be careful of DM's from 'fake Jdog's' or other people and be patient when expressing details to the Telegram or Github with your issue.

Always remember you can also use the Bitcoin Core (Testnet) to test and experiment functions using Freewallet without using any funds to do so. If you are wondering how to access the Testnet using Freewallet please reference Can I use the Counterparty/Bitcoin Testnet in Freewallet?
