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. Select “Get started”.

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

  3. Type or paste your recovery phrase.


  4. Confirm the wallet you would like to import, then select “Continue”.

  5. Choose your backup method. You can choose to back up to iCloud or manually backup your recovery phrase (this means to write it down, we strongly recommend this method).

    If you back up your recovery phrase on iCloud 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 backup password as well. If you forget your password, Uniswap Labs cannot retrieve it.

  6. Turn on push notifications.


  7. Set up Touch or Face ID.

  8. Once all of these steps are completed, you are ready to swap using the Uniswap Wallet.
