Polkadot Vault [Legacy]

All about using Polkadot Vault with Nova Wallet

The information in this section is relevant to versions of Polkadot Vault below v6.3.

Polkadot Vault is a cold storage solution, which allows you to turn your iOS or Android device into a dedicated hardware wallet for Polkadot, Kusama, and other Substrate-based chains. Your keys are kept secure (i.e. offline) at all times, and transactions are signed in an air-gapped way via QR codes.

Using Polkadot Vault in conjunction with Nova Wallet means you will use 2 mobile devices to sign transactions. It is important to note that the device which has Polkadot Vault installed on it should be

  1. Factory Reset to remove any previous data

  2. Disconnected from the internet

  3. Set to airplane mode

If your Polkadot Vault Device ever connects to the internet / is tethered to a computer with internet access, you will receive a warning that your Polkadot Vault Device is no longer secure.
