How do I Setup Jaxx Liberty Wallet Chrome Extension?
Navigate to the Google Chrome Web Store and search for Jaxx Liberty. Click “Add to Chrome”.
A pop up will appear asking if you would like to add Jaxx Liberty. After reading the text displayed, click “Add extension”.
Once added to Chrome, you will see the Jaxx Liberty icon in the top right corner. Click on this to open the app to begin the setup process. Click “Create New Wallet”.
Once you have read the Terms of Service click “I Agree”.
The most important part of setting up any cryptocurrency wallet is to secure your backup phrase. I cannot stress this point enough: without this phrase, if you lose access to your wallet YOU COULD LOSE YOUR COINS! Find a pen and paper and when ready, click “Back Up Now”.
Carefully read this next screen. When you’re ready to continue with the backup process, tick the box and click “Start Backup”.
A set of four words will appear. WRITE THESE DOWN ON PAPER. Continue clicking through and writing down the words that appear. You will end up with 12 words in total; your 12-word backup phrase. Think of this phrase as the only key to a security vault; it is invaluable.
It is safest not to store your backup phrase on your computer. We recommend writing it down on at least one piece of paper. You then need to store this paper somewhere safe where you won’t lose it. Once again, if you lose your backup phrase you can lose access to your crypto assets. Some people prefer to memorise their backup phrase, some have it etched into a piece of metal, so it can’t be destroyed or damaged in the event of a fire or flood. Decide what method of storing this phrase OFFLINE and off of a computer works best for you.
Now that you have your backup phrase written down, you need to type it back into Jaxx Liberty to confirm you have recorded it correctly.
Now it is time to set your security password. Click on the three stacked horizontal lines in the top right to open the menu.
Scroll through the menu options and select “Security Password” which is highlighted by a red warning symbol.
Carefully read this page and once you are finished, tick the boxes and continue to the next page.
Make sure you don’t use a password that is used for other accounts. If you follow the password guidelines on the screen you should end up with the Password strength indicator of five green bars. Confirm your password and click “Continue”. It can be useful to also write this password down on paper. Alternatively, you can use password management software such as Dashlane.
Now that your wallet is secure, it’s time to customise the app to suit your needs. From the banner at the top of the app, click “Proceed” to choose which wallets you would like to have visible in your app.
The final thing I like to do is change the default currency to NZD. To do this, open the menu again and scroll down to the “Settings” section. Click on “Native Currency” and type to search for NZD.
Your Jaxx Liberty wallet Chrome extension is now set up. Finding your wallet address is easy. Simply click on the wallet you wish to use and click “Receive”. Your current address will be displayed along with a QR code. Either scan this code or click on the “Copy Address” button to copy your wallet address to your clipboard. Remember, always copy and paste your wallet address and double check that it pasted correctly.
