Set up wallet

After installation, you will be taken to multiple onboard screens and the Fizen homepage.

Select Let’s set up a wallet to

  • Create a new wallet OR

  • Import an existing wallet

Create a new wallet

Step 1: Read the guidelines and accept the security claim.

Step 2: Biometric authentication and password input

  • If your device has biometric security enabled, you will be required to authenticate with facial or fingerprint recognition to enable the Sign in with Biometrics feature. You can either leave the checkbox unchecked or return to Settings later to disable this feature

  • If your device does not have biometric security enabled, you cannot enable the Sign in with Biometrics feature.

  • Enter the password for the wallet. Password must consist of at least 8 characters. Fizen suggests that passwords should be more than 8 characters using a mixture of numbers, uppercase & lowercase letters, and symbols.

Step 3: Select Create wallet and wait for the system to process the request.

Step 4: Receive a backup wallet alert as you navigate to the homepage.

  • By choosing Backup, the system will show the Secret phrase and prompt you to save it somewhere secure. If your secret phrase is lost or destroyed, you will not be able to get your assets back, ever. You should NEVER, under any circumstances, share your secret phrase with any other person. It’s best to store them in the most secure way possible (e.g. on a paper wallet or a hardware wallet).

  • By choosing Not now, you can forego the Backup wallet step and proceed directly to using assets at your own risk. You'll always get a reminder from us until this process is done.

Step 5: Back up your wallet

  • Click Next (Continue) to enter the Secret Phrase again, from 1 to 12 in proper order.

  • To safeguard the assets in your wallet, you must keep the Secret Phrase in a secure place.

  • A secret phrase made up of 12 different words, ordered from 1 to 12, will be displayed by the system.

  • You MUST Confirm password before backing up your wallet
