How to Secure my Recovery Phrase?​

For some peace of mind
  • Physical Security: Write down your Recovery Phrase on paper or engrave it on a piece of metal. Store it in a secure location, such as a safe or a locked box.
  • Redundancy: Create multiple copies of your recovery phrase and store them in separate secure locations.
  • Digital Protection: For digital backups, use strong encryption methods and utilize a password manager with robust security features. Avoid storing it on devices connected to the internet.
