Visual Improvements and Enhancements for Users

Xumm 2.4.0 comes with several visible enhancements for users to help make the Xumm user experience even better.
These enhancements include the option to tap the balance on the home screen to see the fiat equivalent of their XRP balance.
The new update also shows the reserved XRP on the home screen, which can be tapped to reveal the breakdown. Users can turn off the reserved display in the settings menu.
Xumm also received small UI improvements, including a better-looking font on the home screen, a shadow on the button dock, and the removal of the white flicker when opening xApps while in dark mode.
Users can now also revoke push notifications from third-party sites and xApps. You'll have peace of mind knowing that you can easily revoke any push permissions granted in the past.

Pathfinding Payments: Say Goodbye to Tedious Currency Conversions

Pathfinding payments are now available in Xumm. This new update allows users to pay with any token available on the XRP Ledger while ensuring the beneficiary receives the exact currency they requested.
This feature streamlines transactions and is perfect for retail transactions. The ability for developers to send sign requests for pathfinding payments is also one of the significant updates in the new release.

Enjoy More Control Over Your NFTs

If you're a fan of NFTs, you'll love the new updates in Xumm 2.4.0.
You can now view all of your owned NFTs on the home screen, complete with pictures and titles.

You can also show pending offers and cancel your own offers.
Plus, the improved sign request information shows more NFT details, such as the burnable trait.

Better Security for Your Account

Security is the top priority at Xumm, and as such, we improved our encryption algorithms, ensuring that your account is safer than ever. Updating Xumm to this enhanced standard is a testament to our commitment to providing our users with the best possible experience when it comes to managing their crypto assets.
We take security very seriously and know that our users expect nothing less than the best. That's why we're constantly looking for ways to improve our encryption algorithms and ensure your private keys are as safe as possible.
With the latest AES 256-GCM algorithm, we've taken security to a whole new level. We believe this update will further extend our lead in the crypto space and help us continue providing our users with the best possible experience.
You can upgrade to the new encryption in the Settings - Accounts section, all new accounts created after the launch of 2.4.0 will automatically have the newest encryption.
We have also made some upgrades to our xApp sandbox, helping prevent compromised third-party xApps from doing harm.
Other security improvements include clearer memo spam warning messages and no more AccountDelete warnings when sending remaining funds to another account managed with Xumm on the same device.
Xumm xApp developers are in for a special treat.

Improvements Under the Hood

The new update has several enhancements under the hood, including integration with fiat stablecoin issuers to allow for Xumm-embedded On/Off-Ramp flows.
We have also added an "Activate Account" button as we will make account activation more user-friendly and smooth.
Users will now receive a notification when their account is imported instead of when the account was first used on another device in full access mode, warning them in real-time.
The app also forces a destination tag entry if it is aware that the destination account requires one, but the account owner hasn't set it on their XRPL account.

In Conclusion

Xumm 2.4.0 is a significant update that brings exciting new features and enhancements to the app, improving the user experience and enhancing security. With these updates, Xumm continues to lead the way in the crypto space, providing our users with the safest and best experience possible.
