I dont know which sub forum to put this but I think its better to post it here for more visibility because its important. It is very easy to get your seed words in Jaxx and the worse part is the people behind it do not have plans to fix it. Use another wallet.

I agree that this is a issue that should be fixed. But I also agree with some things Jaxx's CTO pointed out about the issue:

Quote
- Jaxx is a hot wallet suitable for small amounts
- Jaxx IS NOT cold storage. For large amounts we recommend hardware wallets.
- We expect Users to maintain control of their devices, and we strongly encourage the use of on- device security (ie pin, fingerprint, retina, etc.) in order to secure your ENTIRE device.
