In practice, whenever they need to identify themselves to a web3 website or sign a transaction on the blockchain, users get a notification on their smartphone. They can confirm it is the same way they unlock their system, using, for example, facial recognition or their fingerprint the company confirmed.”

The company is also planning on adding the built-in crypto wallet features to other kinds of platforms, such as its Opera Touch for the iOS browser.
