Easy monitoring your account balance with Distill

Sun May 29, 2016 6:09 pm

Hi,

here is a method to monitor your balance. I know, if your coins are already moved by a bad guy, it is too late - if he moves all your coins - but maybe you have several accounts and someone is trying to suck all your accounts empty one after another, you have some time to react and move your coins to a safe emergancy-account. Anyways, this guide shows you, how to monitor your account balance with the Firefox / Chrome extension Distill:

1. Register an account on Distill.io and choose the "FREE" package
2. Install Distill for Firefox or Chrome
3. Open your browser, click on the Distill icon on the upper right, click on "Go to Watchlist"
4. Click on "Settings" on the upper right and log in
5. Visit https://lisknode.xyz/api/accounts/getBalance?address=PUT-YOUR-ADDRESS-HERE
Attention! Please consider using a different domain from this list for obvious reasons.


6. You should see the balance of your account now. Something like:

Code: Select all

{"success":true,"balance":"6268007997107","unconfirmedBalance":"6268007997107"}

7. Now click on the Distill icon on the upper right again and click on "Monitor whole page"
8. You can now configure the monitoring for this site easily:
Examples:
    - Schedule: 1 minute (please don't set it lower then 1 minute)
    - Actions: Show Notification Popup, Play Audio Clip, Get Email
9. When you've finished your settings, click on Save. You should get notfications if your balance changed

FIN!
