  1. I do not know my 12 word back up phrase. Am I not able to restore and pair my e-wallet on my new computer and cell phone without it? Where is the back up phrase stored in the Jaxx app?

    • Hi Wally,

      Unfortunately, if you have lost your backup phrase, there isn’t much we (or anyone else, including Jaxx) can do to help. It is why you are prompted to write it down and store it securely when you first setup Jaxx. There is currently no way to extract a backup phrase.

      The only option I can think of is checking on iCloud or the Android equivalent to see if you can restore your phone to an older version and access your wallet that way.

      I know it is possible to extract the PIN, but this is quite advanced, and if you wanted to try this I’d recommend finding a comprehensive guide via Google.

      Sorry, we can’t be of more assistance with this. Good luck with trying to restore your phone back up.

      Kind regards,

  2. The fuck is this shit that your app does not have any options to securely access my wallet in case of loss of access and secret phrase.

    I am sure you scumbags have all info on yor servers stored or somewhere else.

    If you will not return my tokens back, I will sue your miserable trash-team for fraud.

    • Hi Alex,

      I can see why you’re upset about losing money. Unfortunately, you have directed your anger and abuse at the wrong company 🙁
      The Jaxx and Jaxx Liberty wallets belong to Decentral. Should you wish to check out their website, I’m sure you will find the correct channel to vent your frustrations.
      Please see the following two links:

      Good luck,

  3. Hi,
    I had my wallet in Jaxx on my former phone. Now I have I new IPhone and decided to download Jaxx Liberty, and no longer Jaxx.
    However, by uploading my wallet I don’t see anything. My twelf word phrase is correct, which I have checked several times.
    What is the solution? In the Apple Store it is no longer possible to download the Jaxx version. Please help!
    Kind regards,

    • Hi Rob,

      Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your wallet. I think the best idea is for you to contact the official Jaxx support team for assistance with this.
      You’ll find them here:
      If there isn’t an article that directly answers your question you will have to open a support ticket with them.

      Best of luck!

  4. I have the same problem as Rob above. I come from Jaxx and am now trying to pair/restore my wallet on Jaxx Liberty without success. It won’t pair but freeze after having put in the twelve word phrase. Phrase is correct! Pleas help!

    • Hi Roman,

      I have emailed you with a link to the official Jaxx support page.
      I believe they will be able to help work out how to solve this issue.
