  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,
