How to backup my recovery phrase in the Uniswap Extension Beta

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

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

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


How to backup your recovery phrase:

  1. Open the Uniswap Extension in your browser and select “Create a new wallet”.

  2. Create and confirm a password for your wallet.

    Remember to write down your Uniswap Extension Beta password and store it in a safe place. If you forget this password, Uniswap Labs won’t be able to help you retrieve it.

  1. Select “Continue”.

  2. Review the recovery phrase warning and select “Continue”.

  3. Write down your recovery somewhere safe, acknowledge the warning that Uniswap Labs cannot recover the phrase, and select “Continue”.

  4. To ensure that you have written down and saved your recovery phrase correctly, you will be asked to enter in some phrases from your recovery phrase.

    Type in the word of your recovery phrase you are being asked to enter.

  1. Once you have completed this three times, you can name your wallet.

  2. Congratulations! You have successfully backed up your recovery phrase and set up your wallet. Now you are ready to use the extension.
