How do I move my Exodus wallet from one computer to another?

If you are planning to use a new computer (desktop or laptop) and are wondering how to move Exodus from the old computer to the new one, this guide is the right place! All you need is one of your backup methods.

First, make sure you have a backup of your wallet. If you haven't backed up your wallet with an email recovery link and 12-word phrase yet, please do so now: https://vimeo.com/176811304

Remember, you must never save your 12-word seed or wallet password in notes, plain text, images, cloud services like Dropbox, Apple Cloud (iCloud), Google Drive, Box etc. Always write down your 12-word seed phrase (or print it) on a piece of paper and store it at multiple places - if you lose your 12-word seed phrase, no one can help in getting your wallet back.
