Create a New Wallet with a Manual Backup

⚠️ Store your secret passphrase privately and NEVER share it with anyone ⚠️

Admins will never DM you first and will never request anything from you β€” if you see a person sending you a message with the same photo & name that admins have β€” it's a scam.

Admins will never ask you for crypto/private key/secret passphrase. Do NOT open links from anyone in DMs to β€œverify/synchronize your wallet” or any requests to β€œfill Google form” β€” these people are trying to scam you. Please Report and block them.

If you share your secret passphrase with anyone they will then have control of your account and your assets.

  1. Open the Nova Wallet application.

  2. Select Create a new wallet.

  3. Input your wallet's nickname.

  4. Select Continue with manual backup.

  5. Select I Understand after reviewing the pop-up warning message.

  6. Tap to reveal your Passphrase and make a copy of it on paper. Check our recommendations on how to store your passphrase securely here.

  7. Review the warnings below and tap on each to accept.
