Disabling Armory’s External Checks

If you would like to maximize your privacy while using Armory, you can explicitly disable all remote communications by starting Armory with the following two command-line switches:

--skip-online-check --skip-announce-check

For information about using command-line switches, see the bottom of our troubleshooting page.

WARNING: Using these switches will disable all alerts that might be issued to protect users during rare network events. If you use them, we strongly encourage you to check this website and bitcoin.org periodically, especially before executing any large or important transactions.
