EOS: Add Account (WIF)
If you have a new Exodus wallet without an EOS account name...
You can add an existing EOS mainnet account to your Exodus wallet. Your EOS account will first need to be activated in a mainnet EOS wallet (SimplEOS, EOS-Voter, and Scatter are the most commonly used).
This method only works before an EOS account is created in an Exodus wallet.
- Download and install a mainnet EOS wallet such as SimplEOS, EOS-Voter, or Scatter and enter your EOS private key to activate your account.
- Import the EOS private key that you received at the time of your registration into the mainnet EOS wallet you installed.
- Open your Exodus EOS wallet and click the three dots in the upper-righthand corner to open the Asset Menu. Choose Add account (WIF).
- Paste the private key into the dialogue box and click Import.
The account is now available in your Exodus wallet, as well as the mainnet wallet.
