How can I recover my Labyrinth account if I lose access to it?

Why should I use bundler method for transaction for transfer/swap/ withdraw?

To enhance privacy, Labyrinth utilizes a bundler to make transactions untraceable when paying gas fees. Typically, users pay gas fees directly, which can be traced back to their public addresses. By using a bundler (or relayer) to pay gas fees on behalf of the user, the user's public address remains hidden, making the transaction untraceable. The gas fees are deducted from your private balance within Labyrinth, not your public balance, to compensate the bundler for relaying and batching the transactions for gas savings.

Bundlers collect transactions from multiple users and combine them into a single transaction before broadcasting it to the blockchain. This process makes it difficult to trace individual transactions back to their origins, as the gas fees are paid by the bundler on behalf of the users.

Does Labyrinth guarantee 100% anonymity?

P2P Transfers inside the shielded pool are 100% anonymous and private. In this case, nothing shows up on the public blockchain ledger. However, in deposits and withdrawals, the public amounts get logged in the public ledger as those transactions interact with the public wallet.
