**Keychain for Hive** is a browser extension (available for Chrome, Firefox and Brave) and mobile app (for Android and Apple), that can store the [private keys](/wiki/Private-Key) of one or more [[Hive]] user accounts, thereby creating secure and seamless access to Hive powered websites, [dApps](/wiki/Decentralized-Application), and services [1]. ![image.png]( source:
## Main features - Stores private keys of Hive user accounts - Sign transactions requested by dApps - Wallet function (viewing balances, transferring tokens, staking, delegating and buying from fiat or exchanges) - Token swapping function - Portfolio view (showing balances across several accounts) ## Usage Most of the Hive dApps have an integrated Keychain functionality for logins and signing transactions. Which transactions are possible via Keychain depends on which keys have been added; for example: if only the posting key was added, token transfers or other financial transactions are not possible.
