How do I recover a previous wallet I had with BRD?
When you launch the BRD app for the first time, you will be given the option to create a new wallet or to recover a wallet. If you have a 12 word paper key from a previous BRD wallet that you would like to recover, follow these steps to recover your wallet:
- Select Recover Wallet
- Click Next and enter the 12 word Paper Key in the correct order for the wallet you want to recover.
- Set a PIN
- Confirm the PIN
- The wallets sync to the blockchain.
Initial syncing can take up to 45 minutes or more so please prepare to leave the app open with the screen on for an extended period of time.
If you wish to recover a wallet using a paper key but you already have an active wallet loaded in the BRD app, you will need to follow the directions to wipe the wallet before beginning the process above. If the wallet you are wiping has funds, be sure to write down the 12 word paper key for the existing wallet (which can be found in the Security Center) before loading the paper key for the wallet you wish to recover.
