Exporting the private key for your Stellar (XLM) address

Backing up your Blockchain.com Wallet is critical and can be done by following this guide. Creating the backup phrase will secure your XLM and other cryptocurrency balances.

You also have the option of exporting the individual private key for your Stellar address. This is useful if you accidentally sent Stellar based tokens to your Blockchain.com Wallet. At this time we only support XLM and do not support sending other Stellar based tokens or showing other Stellar based token balances.

To export your Stellar private key, start by clicking on the gear icon (Settings) in the top righthand corner of your web wallet and clicking Wallets & Addresses.

This section has all of your cryptocurrency sub-wallets and addresses. To find your Stellar private key, go to the Stellar section:

As stated, the private key grants complete ownership of and access to any funds kept on your Stellar address. For this reason, you should never share this information with anyone. Access to a private key means access to the funds associated with the public address.

Click Show to display your private key. Do not display either the QR code or the text to anyone else, and use caution when importing to third-party platforms.
