Create new wallet.
Create new wallet, you'll be prompted to acknowledge the following:
I understand this is a self-custody wallet, and that I alone am responsible for any associated funds, assets, or accounts, and for taking appropriate action to secure, protect and backup my wallet. I understand that Brave can NOT access my wallet or reverse transactions on my behalf, and that my recovery phrase is the ONLY way to regain access in the event of a lost password, stolen device, or similar circumstance.
Next, create a password for this new wallet. Once you've created a password for your wallet, click
You will now be asked to create a 12-word recovery phrase, which you can use to recover your primary crypto accounts.
We highly recommend creating a backup phrase-- if you skip this step and happen to forget or lose your Wallet account password, want to switch accounts, or if your device is stolen/compromised, you will have no way to recover or access any assets contained in your Wallet.
The 12-24 word recovery phrase is a private phrase you can use to regain access to your wallet in case you lose a connected device(s). Store it someplace safe, and in the exact order it appears above.
Once you have your recovery phrase backed up, click on the requested words to verify. Note that these words will always be in the same order. When the correct order of words has been selected, click
Congratulations! Your Brave Wallet is ready to go!
