Learn how to activate and send Private Transactions
Instadapp is integrated with Alchemy's Flashbots API enabling you to submit your transaction directly to the Ethereum miners.
Private Transactions improves the success rate of your transaction by skipping the public mempool this prevents frontrunners from congesting or creating slippage in front of your transaction. Private Transactions can also protect from other forms of MEV attacks and maintains users privacy even when transactions fail.
Open the Global Settings next to the Network selector, you will find a toggle for Private Transaction here. Once activated all transactions from your DSA will be send privately.
You can confirm that Private Transactions are activated by seeing this icon on the top nav.
You will also see the private transaction icon in your transaction preview window before sending your transaction.
When using Private Transactions you sign a signature from your wallet instead of sending a transaction. This enables the relayer to complete your private transaction. If your transaction fails for any reason the information of your transaction is never shared publicly.

Executable Signatures are dangerous and carry risk. Executable signatures can be used to perform any action on your account. Please exercise extreme caution! Due to the increased risk some wallets do not support these kinds of transactions.
