How do I export my 'xpub key'?
BTC, BCH, BTG, LTC, and other "output-based" crypto-currencies use multiple addresses called change addresses to protect user privacy.
You may be asked by the Exodus support team to export your xpub for a particular asset in order to verify your Exodus wallet balance and history are displaying correctly.
The "Extended Public Key" or xpub can be used to generate all of the public addresses controlled by your Exodus wallet, and thereby view your comprehensive 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 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 data report.
1. Access the Developer menu:
On Windows and Linux:
2. Go through the menus to get to the asset you would like the xpub for:
Developer > Assets > Bitcoin
And select the option "Export XPub"
This will dump a folder containing a .txt 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 .txt file to your email reply, or just copy and paste the key from the .txt file into your email body.
