What is a paper key?
A paper key consists of 12 randomly generated words. The app creates the paper key for you automatically when you start a new wallet.
The paper key is critically important and should be written down and stored in a safe location. Never take screenshots of your paper key as this can be stolen if someone gains access to your device.
In the event of phone theft, destruction, or loss, the paper key can be used to recover your wallet onto a new phone. The key is also required when upgrading your current phone to a new one.
To find your paper key follow these steps:
- On the main screen, tap on Menu.
- Select Security Settings.
- Tap on Paper Key.
- Tap on Write Down Paper Key Again.
- Enter your PIN and you will be shown each word in your paper key on separate pages.
