Backup Your Wallet And Restore It Elsewhere

How to backup your wallet and restore it with other crypto applications

Backup Your Wallet

The 12-word backup phrase is literally the most important thing you need to know from the Lead Wallet application. Moreover, it's extremely important to save your 12-word backup phrase and never share it with anybody! If you forgot your backup upon your wallet creation, you don't need to worry. You can easily access it again under Settings

Under Settings, you should go to Manage Wallets

If you only have one wallet within your Lead Wallet application, you should only see one row under Manage Wallet page here. Tap the three dots next to your wallet name

And choose Backup

Inside the Backup page, tap Reveal your secret phase. Write it down in a physical book and never share that book with anybody. Once someone else know your secret phrase (backup phrase), that same person will be able to access all your cryptocurrencies inside this same wallet.

You do not want to save your backup phrase in the cloud or email. Always make sure everything is stored offline

Restore Your Backup Elsewhere

What happens if one day you are unable to access your Lead Wallet application for some reasons? In this case, you would need to restore your wallet to other crypto applications. Fortunately, our backup phrases work with major crypto wallet applications.

When you download a specific crypto wallet application, it should ask you if you want to restore a previous or existing wallet. Choose that option and write down the 12-word backup phrase that you have previously saved somewhere. The wallet will be able to recognize your 12-word backup phrase and you can send/receive cryptocurrencies normally.

If one specific crypto wallet application does not work with Lead Wallet's 12-word backup phrase, download a different application and try to restore the backup there.
