Mobile: How do I view my recovery phrase?
Your wallet backup is your 12-word recovery phrase.
To view your 12-word recovery phrase, follow these steps:
- Open your Profile by tapping the the person silhouette icon in the lower right corner of your screen.
- Tap Security
- Tap Recovery Phrase
- Tap View Recovery Phrase if you are ready and able to write these magical 12-words down on paper and store them them in a secure and private location.
- Leave your finger on the Press and Hold to Reveal button to see your 12-word recovery phrase.
Make sure nothing (people, cameras) is around to peep your recovery phrase. Anyone with your recovery phrase can access your funds from anywhere at any time. They will not require your phone, nor any passcodes you may have set. Your 12-word recovery is the master key.
Do not take a screenshot of your 12 word recovery phrase. Do not create a digital copy or store it on a computer where it will be at risk of getting snagged by malware and hackers. Write it down on paper.
