Jaxx Wallet Backup Phrase
When a new Jaxx wallet is created, a 12-word backup phrase is generated as well. This backup phrase is 12 random words in a particular order that can be used to restore your wallet in case you lose or break the device Jaxx is on. Having a copy of your backup phrase is essential. If you lose access to your wallet and don’t have the backup phrase, you could lose all funds stored on Jaxx.
We strongly recommend viewing the backup phrase privately. If anyone gains access to these 12 words they will have access to your wallet, and therefore your Cryptocurrency. We suggest writing down two copies and storing them in secure separate locations in case a copy is damaged by fire, water or simply deteriorates over time. To view your backup phrase click menu (top right corner) > tools > backup wallet > view backup phrase.
