For users who would want to perform the authority transfer in a safer way there is an option to make a Safe Authority Transfer (SAT).
SAT creates a transaction in the Squad, which needs to be signed by both Squad's Vault PDA and the current authority holder.
To perform a Safe Authority Transfer (SAT):
  1. 1.
    Add your CLI wallet to the Squad. Check the Owners and Setting page for more info on how to add members.
  2. 2.
    Click on the "Create SAT" button.
  3. 3.
    Enter a description (optional) and run a transaction inside your Squad.
  4. 4.
    Once the transaction meets the confirmation threshold, execute it with your CLI wallet, which you added to your Squad. More on transactions here.
  5. 5.
    After the transaction is executed, the withdraw authority will be transferred to your Squad.
