Xeth may be an insecure wallet due to their hot storage, the absence of 2FA and multi-signature authentication. In exchange they offer a dual-key stealth that allows scanning for payments without exposing the private key. The user has two private keys, one for spending and one for scanning. There is no recovery system to decrypt the private keys without the user's password.
