You can start creating a new wallet by selecting “Create New Wallet”.
Create your wallet, choose a password and take your recovery phrase.
Once you have selected “Create a new wallet”, you will need to choose a password to secure your account. This will be used every time to enter the wallet.
Then you need to upload a backup copy of your wallet. You can save this on your computer in an encrypted file or externally. This MUST be saved as you will need it along with your password to recover your account and assets if something happens to the device.
It is important that you keep this information safe and do not share it with anyone, as you risk losing your cryptocurrency.
After downloading the backup, you will have access to the wallet.
The wallet is now set up and Guarda automatically assigns all security features to it. This means automatic downloads of backups, session timeouts, and password requests to change wallet information. Mobile versions of this wallet allow you to enable biometric authentication for fast and secure access.
