I'm using the meet.one app and there is the option to change the active and owner keys under "authority management". Will this affect my balance if I change both of these keys to something else?

  • no, it won't affect your balance

  • the purpose of changing the public keys is to remove access of an hacker that has stolen access to your account right? Commented Oct 15, 2018 at 16:47
  • 1
    that can be one of them. you may want to change your keys to give more people access under a multisig design, you may want to transfer your account to someone else, you may think you have too many accounts managed by the same key(s), etc
