What is a recovery phrase?

A recovery phrase is the master password that grants access to your crypto wallet.

If you lose your iPhone/Android, you’ll be able to restore your wallet using your recovery phrase. Furthermore, anyone with access to your recovery phrase can access your wallet.

It is important to keep this phrase in a safe place, and never share your recovery phrase with anyone.

If you lose your recovery phrase, you will lose access to your wallet.

 

Important aspects to keep in mind

  • Uniswap Labs Support will never ask for your recovery phrase
  • If you lose your recovery phrase, you lose access to your wallet forever
  • Anyone who has access to your recovery phrase can access your wallet

 

Use your recovery phrase rarely

The Uniswap Wallet will only ask for your recovery phrase once.

After you have created or imported your wallet, you will not need to provide your seed phrase again. If you lose your iPhone or delete the Uniswap Wallet app, you will need your seed phrase to restore your wallet.

Please keep your recovery phrase stored in a secret and secure location, and never share it with anyone else.
