How do I set up Jaxx Liberty mobile wallet?
The Jaxx Liberty wallet is a multi-currency wallet available as a desktop or mobile application across most operating systems and via a Chrome extension. With Jaxx, you can also import an Ethereum paper wallet if you have one. With this type of downloadable wallet app, the public and private key pairs are encrypted and stored locally (read: on the device). Furthermore, Jaxx gives you permissionless access, which means no account setup is required, meaning your data remains anonymous.
Pros: Beginner friendly. Multi-currency wallet. Free. Multiple platforms. Good privacy.
Cons: It can be buggy, though this has improved recently.
The following step-by-step video guide will show you how to install the Jaxx Liberty wallet on your mobile. The video highlights iOS, but it’s just as easy on Android 🙂

Text & image guide for setting up Jaxx Liberty wallet on a mobile device
First of all, head on over to the iOS App Store or the Android Play Store. Search for Jaxx Liberty and then go ahead and download the Jaxx Liberty app as below.
Alternatively, visit the official Jaxx website’s downloads page, where you’ll find links that will take you to the correct app store.
Once downloaded, you are going to see the following new app icon on your mobile device.
Click on the Jaxx Liberty wallet icon to open the app, and you’ll see the following.
Click on the orange “Create New Wallet” button to begin.
You’ll be asked if you are doing this in private. As long as it’s just the family dog or cat looking over your shoulder, grab a pen and paper (and make sure you do grab them!), read the warnings, then click the checkbox and tap the now orange “Start Backup” button.
As always, write down the phrase and keep it in a safe place/place. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP! If you lose this recovery phrase, you won’t be able to restore your crypto wallet to a new device should you need to. Also, never give it to anyone else or you risk losing your crypto assets.
Write these words down and then click “Next 4 words”.
Finish off by jotting the last four down and tapping “Confirm Backup Phrase”.
Next, you’ll need to enter the twelve words you’ve written down in the correct order.
Once you’re done, go ahead and click confirm. Note: if you don’t correctly confirm your backup phrase in the right order, you won’t click to continue the set-up process.
And here we are! Done and dusted.
Tap on “Jaxx Liberty Home”, and you’re good to go.
Here’s what you’ll see. This is your home screen. As you can see, this is customisable (if you want a hand with that, sing out in the comments section at the bottom of this page or start a chat with one of our customer service reps).
As always, the wallet shown in the images above was set up purely for demonstration purposes, and there aren’t any funds in there.
