How To Receive Wallet Transactions Notifications by Email — Keep Watch!
Find out how to set wallet notifications and receive emails whenever an incoming or outgoing transaction occurs.
Because you take security very seriously, you want to know what happens in your cryptocurrency wallet at any time.
- ❔ Are you receiving tokens or NFTs you haven’t purchased?
- ❔ Are any of your crypto assets being transferred?
- ❔ Is there any suspicious activity you must take care of immediately
Setting up wallet transaction notifications directly to your email is straightforward and free.
This free feature will allow you to be informed and quickly react to any undesired activity that may be suspicious.

- ✔️✔️ One expected transaction notification.
- ❔ ✔️ One unexpected but benign transaction notification.

Because we have set up email notifications, we have received an email notifying us of a token ‘send’ transaction.
Nothing suspicious here. This is a transaction we have initiated.

It notifies you via email whenever incoming or outgoing transactions involving the listed addresses occur.
❔ ✔️ Phantom Wallet Bening Balance Change Notification
Similar to the Ethereum Watch List notifications, other blockchains allow users to set up Watch Lists and receive ‘In’ and ‘Out’ transaction tracking emails.
