Can Atomic Wallet Team have access to my transactions, keys, or backup phrase?

How Atomic Wallet differs from centralized exchanges?
Centralized services create user accounts that they control and keep your private keys. They are operating as traditional banks and act as a third party between you and your funds.
It’s true, that if you lose your password or account, they will be able to provide it back to you. On the other hand, there is always a risk of centralized hacker attacks on their servers. Many exchanges put restrictions on trade volumes and daily withdrawal limit for unverified users, as well as charging service fees. Not to mention, this third party can turn out to be untrustworthy and steal your funds or freeze them.
Holding your private keys with Atomic Wallet means fully controlling your funds.
No service fee, no user accounts, no volume limits, no centralized attacks – just you and your funds.
Can Atomic Wallet Team make a transaction for me?
