To protect the integrity of the binaries the Monero team provides a cryptographically signed list of all the [SHA256](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SHA-2) hashes. If your downloaded binary has been tampered with it will be produce a [different hash](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_verification) than the one in the file.
If the fingerprint of this key **DOES NOT** match, **DO NOT CONTINUE**. Instead delete the file `binaryfate` from the `Downloads` directory and go back to [section 2.1](#21-download-signing-key).
In a web browser, go to the [getmonero.org hash page]({{ site.baseurl_root }}/downloads/hashes.txt). Right click the page, select `Save Page As`.
If you receive an **INVALID** signature, **DO NOT CONTINUE.** Instead delete the file `hashes` from the `Downloads` directory and go back to [section 3.1](#31-download-hash-file).
In a web browser, go to the [getmonero.org downloads page]({{ site.baseurl_root }}/downloads/#windows). Select the correct binary for your system.
If your hash **DOES NOT** match **DO NOT CONTINUE.** Instead delete the Monero binary from the `Downloads` directory and go back to [section 4.1](#41-download-binary).
