How do I upgrade Exodus?

Upgrading your Exodus wallet is an essential part of keeping your crypto assets like Bitcoin, Ethereum & others safe. If you are worried about losing funds during the upgrade, ensure you have a backup of your wallet: https://support.exodus.io/article/41-how-do-i-backup-my-exodus-wallet

Why should I upgrade Exodus?

  1. We release security patches from time to time in order to better protect you from the latest vulnerabilities.
  2. New assets are added as our team is always working on adding more and more assets inside Exodus.
  3. Additional security features are added inside the wallet.
  4. Additional exchange partners, exchangeable assets, etc. are added to the wallet.
  5. Feature improvements and bug fixes are added from time to time.

To upgrade Exodus, follow these steps. Note that installing a new version and overwriting an old version is safe. Exodus keeps your blockchain assets in a separate location.

We have released auto-upgrades for Windows and MacOS wallet versions starting version 1.60.0.
