iOS wallet: How to restore access to my account

Step 1: Click on the "Import Wallet" button on the main page of the Lite Client

Step 2: Copy and paste or type your SEED into the blank text field.
Assign a name to the account. Then, click on the "Create Wallet" button.

Note: If you have the seed phrase that contains 15 words with spaces, in this case use only "Plain text" as format.

But if you have only "Encoded seed" just use "Base58" field.

Step 3: To finish the process, set a password and repeat for encryption of the SEED phrase. 

Click on the "OK" button again and you will be forwarded to the user interface
of the Lite Client

Step 4: In the additional section of the main menu, click on the "More" button

Step 5: Click on it and you will forwarded to additional wallet section.
There you will find your Waves address. If you have imported an account correctly, you will get the same address that you had.

If you find an address that does not belong to you and your balance is empty, it means that you have incorrectly restored access. To gain access, you need to repeat the restoration procedure.

Note: The seed phrase always contains 15 words with spaces between each word, except the beginning of the first word and the end of the last word.

It is not possible to recover your password. However, you can restore your wallet only from the seed phrase, and choose a new password. 

If you lose both your password and your seed, there is no way to recover your money. This is why we ask you to save your seed phrase on paper.

Waves platform does not have access to users accounts and seed phrases.
