How to export your Bitcoin 'xpub key'

Exodus uses multiple Bitcoin receive addresses and change addresses to protect user privacy. But sometimes, you'll run into situations where you need a member of the Exodus support team to be able to audit your full Bitcoin transaction history to verify your Exodus wallet balance and history are displaying correctly. 

Enter the "Extended Public Key" (XPub key). Your XPub key can be used to generate all of the public addresses controlled by your Exodus wallet, and thereby view your comprehensive Bitcoin wallet history.

This is useful, because it allows you to send a perfect picture of your wallet's history to Exodus support staff, without compromising your wallet - the xpub key does not allow the control of your wallet, only the inspection of its activity. While not as important or sensitive as your private keys, do be cautious about giving out your xpub key. Anyone who has it can fully monitor your BTC wallet activity. 

Here's how to export your xpub key:

Note: Starting with version 1.39.3, the xpub key is included in the Safe report. 

1. Access the Developer menu:

On Windows:

On Mac: 

2. Go through the menus to get to Bitcoin:

Developer > Assets > Bitcoin

And select the option "Export XPub"

This will dump a folder containing a .csv file onto your Desktop. Within that file, you can find your xpub key. If an Exodus support team member requested your xpub key, you can attach this .csv file to your email reply.
