Keep your Mnemonic Passphrase safe!

Keeping your account's mnemonic passphrase secret, safe and secure is one of the most important things you can do in order to protect your digital assets!

We strongly recommend that you do not store your passphrase digitally, and instead store it physically (this is so that if your device is compromised, your seed phrase remains safe).

However, having your seed phrase on a single piece of paper in a single location presents its own risks - what if an intruder steals the single piece of paper, or what if your house burns down in an accident?

Due to this, we would strongly recommend the Banana Split method, or using similar logic to store your seed phrase in multiple shards!

These 3 shards should be physically separated from each other, to prevent a single accident from destroying all of the shards. If an adversary should steal just a single shard, they cannot gain access to your digital assets. We strongly advise against telling anyone where your shards are kept.
