Restore Jaxx Liberty wallet
If anything happens to your Jaxx Liberty wallet or you lose or damage the device, your wallet is installed, on you can restore it, retaining all of your crypto assets.
To restore your Jaxx Liberty wallet, you will need the 12-word backup phrase.
If you are doing a fresh install of Jaxx Liberty, navigate through the opening menus accepting the terms and conditions.
You can also restore your wallet if the app is already installed on your device by following the steps below.
Please make sure you have your backup phrase (aka recovery phrase) before attempting to restore your wallet.
Firstly, open the hamburger menu in Jaxx Liberty – the three stacked lines on the top right-hand side – and choose the restore option under the tools menu.
Alternatively, if you have a newly installed version of the Jaxx Liberty app, click “Pair/Restore Existing Wallet” (some devices may word this differently and say “Restore Interface” instead). Always ensure you read and agree to the T’s & C’s.
Click to enter your backup phrase, paying attention to the spelling – Jaxx uses American English, not British English.
Confirm you are doing your restore in private, then type in your Backup Phrase in the order you wrote it down. The wallet created for this guide is only for demonstrating the process, so I haven’t hidden my Backup Phrase as you should. Remember, never give this to anyone! It’s strictly for your eyes only (and the same applies to your private key).
Once you have typed your 12 words, click the orange “Restore Wallet” button to continue.
It only takes a minute or so for this process to be done. Your wallet is now restored.
I recommend you take the time now to set additional security features such as the optional security password.
