How do I restore from my 12 word phrase?

If you lost access to your crypto assets like Bitcoin, Ethereum and etc., you can use your 12-word phrase to restore access to them inside the Exodus wallet.

Note that additional methods of invoking a 12-word restoration are available from the developer menu or from the lock screen.

  1. Download the latest version of Exodus at
  2. Launch Exodus
  3. Click the "Restore from Backup" button on the Portfolio welcome screen (shown in the picture below)
  4. Choose 12 Word Recovery Phrase
  5. Exodus will then restart and ask you to enter your 12-word phrase
  6. Type your 12-word phrase in order with one space between each word - all in the small case, no capital letters
  7. Click Restore
  8. After a few seconds, Exodus will open with a popup "Restore Complete" Click OK and go do something else while Exodus finishes restoring your assets; this can take around 10 minutes to complete.
  9. When Exodus says "All Done! Your assets have been restored" your wallet is ready to use.
  10. Make sure to set a password on your newly restored wallet. See the video tutorial for instructions.
