Digital Wallet Best Practices

  1. If you intend to use your wallet for multiple purposes, it's recommended that you set up multiple wallets. Refer to this article that breaks down the 3 wallets everyone should have.

  2. When you generate a new Solflare wallet, you'll have a 24-word recovery phrase that you'll need to safeguard. Don't let anyone else see this phrase and ensure that you remain the only person who knows it.

As a start, you can do any of these three things to securely store your recovery phrase.

  1. Get a piece of paper, write down the phrase, and store it in a safe and secure place. Make multiple copies if need be but make sure no one else finds them.

  2. Copy & Paste the whole mnemonic phrase and keep it in an encrypted file or document. Don't forget the password to that file.

  3. Download the backup under the mnemonic phrase via the link and store this file somewhere offline or if online, use an encrypted storage service like NordLocker. You can also encrypt the downloaded file. Don't forget the password to that file.
