In order to import your recovery phrase from your Coinbase Wallet you will have to find your recovery phrase, then import the recovery phrase in the Uniswap Wallet.


Before importing your recovery phrase, make sure you are in a safe and private location. No one should be able to see your recovery phrase.


You should never share your recovery phrase. If someone is able to access your recovery phrase, they can control your wallet and approve transactions.
