Import Existing Polkadot Vault Account

The following steps need to be carried out on your Polkadot Vault device.

  1. Open the Polkadot Vault application.

  2. Select Recover Key Set.

  3. Input the name for your key set.

  4. Input your secret recovery phrase and then select next.

  5. Select the networks that you would like to import keys for (you can add more alter) and select Done.

  6. Polkadot Vault will now create keys for you that have the following derivation path format:

    • //polkadot for Polkadot, //kusama for Kusama, etc.

    • If you want to add the root key (i.e. with no derivation path) then you should follow the section of the wiki on how to add the root key for a network.
