Dear LOBSTR users,
LOBSTR is celebrating our 3 year anniversary.
We think it’s a great time to take a moment and tell you about some of the things we’ve been working on lately, as well as invite you to participate in our birthday lumen giveaway (more details below).
The year 2018 has started great for everyone in Stellar community. The first months of 2018 have been very productive for LOBSTR as well!
Below are the highlights of our recent updates and some insights into the upcoming features.
Over 5,000 users have already activated it, and recently we released the updates which allow to protect every outgoing transaction with 2FA confirmation. We encourage you to enable 2FA as well!
Other security updates include better logging of all security related events, secure process for revealing the private key, email alerts about new IP address, and others.
Decreased account reserve (down to 1 XLM from 20 XLM)
As you know, all Stellar accounts must maintain a minimum balance of lumens, which has been decreased to 1 XLM recently.
Instant Stellar account activation with 1 XLM credit for new LOBSTR users
To make your new Stellar account activated, you need to have at least 1XLM on it.
LOBSTR now provides you 1 XLM credit to activate your Stellar account upon creation, so you’ll have live account instantly. Read more about 1XLM credit
We are trying to improve our support services all the time. During the last few months we increased the support team, to make response time as short as we can. Also, we made a good progress filling in the LOBSTR knowledge base.
LOBSTR mobile apps
Significant part of our community are using LOBSTR mobile Android and iOS apps. That’s why we constantly improve them, adding new features, fixes and polishing interface. Make sure you use the latest versions which support QR codes, 2FA, Fingerprint and Face ID for iPhone X.
Please read this article if you are interested why iOS app is not available on AppStore.
Usability and design improvements
User-friendly design is a key point which separates LOBSTR from other Stellar wallets.
We have collected lots of feedback from our users and have improved the UX of the application to make the app simple and easy to use. We understand that design is a time-sensitive thing, which should be frequently updated. That’s why we improved different parts of the wallet already and are planning other design updates.

To celebrate our anniversary LOBSTR team is pleased to announce a 10,000 XLM giveaway to our users that will take place in March!
