If you have Argent Vault (Layer 1 wallet)
Make sure you are on the latest Argent app version. You can download the latest Argent app on App store or Play Store:
Open your Argent wallet and tap the account switcher:
If you see zkSync as an active button with 'Early access' or 'Beta' next to it, it means zkSync network is available for your Argent app and you can switch to it.
Once you tap it, you will see some screens introducing the new account. Then you will enter your zkSync account. Congratulations, you are almost set!
Claiming zkSync address for old or recovered wallets
If you have created your Argent wallet before July 2021, or have recovered it at least once with guardians since then, you will need to claim your zkSync address. Why?
Claiming is a security feature of zkSync that connects your Argent Vault to your zkSync account. It allows you to easily withdraw assets to Ethereum Layer 1 if you want.
Claiming a zkSync address is an on-chain Layer 1 transaction and requires Layer 1 network fee to complete.
Wallets created after July 2021 have the address claimed during wallet creation so don't need to go through the process.
If you need to do it, you will see this option in zkSync wallet home:

If you don't have Argent Vault (Layer 1 wallet)
If you don't have a Layer 1 wallet with us yet, proceed with creating one (you don't have to activate it).
For this, please download the latest Argent app on App store or Play Store:
Afterwards, please go through the onboarding process up until you see the home screen of your new Argent wallet.
Set-up on zkSync
The next step is to set-up your account on the zkSync network. Everyone using zkSync needs to do this. The network fee for this is usually just $2-$5. You can find more details here.
I am in, what's next?
You will be prompted to review your security settings - if you want to avoid Layer 1 recovery network fees in future, you might want to setup off-chain recovery option.
You can add assets to your zkSync account by using Add funds option or sending the assets from another wallet.
