How do I make a wallet backup?

Our Security Center Guide covers the backup process in more detail with step-by-step screenshots. For a less detailed explanation, keep following below. 

To make a wallet backup, go to Settings -> Security, and Backup Phrase at the right. You can choose to print the recovery sheet template we created, or use your own template.

Go to Next Step to begin writing down the phrase. Each step will show you 4 words at a time. Ensure you write them exactly as they appear, and in the proper order. Click Next 4 Words to continue until you’ve written all 12 words down.

Next, go to Final Step, where you’ll be asked to type in several of your recovery words to make sure you’ve written them down correctly. Click on Finish, and your wallet is now backed up.

If you ever need to restore access to your wallet, click here to use your Recovery Phrase. 

Please note, your recovery phrase doesn’t apply to any imported addresses. If you have funds stored under Imported Addresses that you want to make sure you can also recover, use the Transfer All option to the right of Imported Addresses to move them.
