What is it?
We want to make sure you never lose access to your cryptocurrency. We've therefore tried to make it as easy as possible to ensure you can recover your wallet on a new phone if your old one is lost or stolen.
How does it work?
Two options of recovery are available:
- Off-chain recovery with the encrypted recovery key
- Recovery with guardians
Off-chain recovery with the encrypted recovery key
If you are moving to a new device and have access to your wallet, or saved the encrypted recovery key before, you can use off-chain recovery. This is an off-chain process that doesn't have network fee applied to it.
You can find a complete guide on off-chain recovery here.
Recovery with guardians
Argent lets you select people or devices to be your guardians. If you want to recover your wallet on a new phone, you'd need at least half of your guardians to approve it.
For example, if you had two guardians you'd need you and at least one guardian to approve.
