Backing up your Lamden Wallet Accounts

At no point does the Lamden Wallet do an Automatic Backup. All backups are MANUAL and the user's responsibilty.

When to backup

A backup must be created EVERYTIME a new account is added to your Lamden Wallet. This includes Linked Accounts.

Backup Options

There are a couple ways to backup you Lamden Wallet Accounts and either will allow you restore an account later:

  1. Create Keystore File
    • This is an encrypted file that contains the keypairs associated with your account
  2. View Secret Keys
    • Some people prefer to write the secret keys down manually and store them offline

These are the only ways to backup your accounts.

Backing up Linked Accounts

A Keystore file will include the keypairs for your Linked Accounts but the DAPP association will be lost.

When the Linked Account keypairs are restored you can follow this process to re-link you account to the DAPP.
