This article aims to help you migrate safely from Alta Wallet to another wallet app. Here, Infinito Wallet is used as the example. If you wish to choose an alternative wallet, the same procedures can be applied. Just follow these three simple steps!

Step 1: Backup Your Passphrase on Alta Wallet

On your Alta Wallet dashboard, expand the Menu sidebar and select Backup. Hit Start Backup to initiate the process.

You will be shown your wallet’s 12-word passphrase. It is recommended that you write it down in the correct order shown (Figure 3 & 4) and keep it somewhere secure. This way, your unique passphrase will be virtually uncompromisable.

If you have multiple wallets on Alta Wallet, please back them up individually as each wallet has its own unique passphrase.
