How to import a recovery phrase into the Uniswap Wallet

If you already have a wallet, it’s easy to switch to the Uniswap Wallet.

You can simply copy your recovery phrase from your current wallet app, then paste it in the Uniswap Wallet to get started.


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.


How to import your recovery phrase:

  1. Download and open the Uniswap Wallet on Apple iOS or Android (waitlist).

  2. Select “Add an existing wallet”.

  3. Select “Import a wallet.” This will allow you to import your recovery phrase from another wallet.

  4. Type or paste your recovery phrase, then select “Continue”.

  5. Confirm the wallet address you would like to import, then select “Continue”. All wallet addresses created with the recovery phrase entered will be listed.

  6. Choose your backup method.

    You can choose to back up to iCloud/Google Drive or manually backup your recovery phrase (this means to write it down). We strongly recommend both methods.

    If you back up your recovery phrase on iCloud/Google Drive in the Uniswap Wallet, you will create a backup password. The file with your recovery phrase is securely stored. You should write down your iCloud/Google Drive backup password as well. If you forget your password and your recovery phrase, Uniswap Labs cannot retrieve it.
