If you create a new wallet, we recommend you do so offline. One you reach the Theta Wallet site, take your device offline / put it in airplane mode, then click “Create Wallet”. Next you will download an encrypted keystore file and create a wallet password. This encrypted keystore file on your computer will be used to unlock your wallet any time you want to access it. You will then need to copy down the mnemonic/seed phrase (and private key, if you choose to) and store them in a safe place. Your mnemonic/seed phrase and private key are the only way to restore your Theta wallet if you lose your keystore file and/or wallet password! Make sure you save them correctly and store them offline in safe place (never online or in the cloud!). Once your wallet has been created, you can re-connect your device and unlock your new Theta wallet.
If you are unlocking an existing wallet, we recommend you take your device offline while upload your keystore or enter your mnemonic phrase or private key. Once the wallet has been unlocked, you’ll see a screen that says “you’re offline!” and will have the opportunity to connect to the internet before you continue to the wallet.
Once you’re in your Theta wallet, you can check the balance of your Theta Tokens and TFuel.
Access your Theta wallet on the web here
The Theta wallet is available now in the Google Play Store for any Android-enabled device and the Apple App Store for iOS.
When you first initiate the Theta wallet, you’ll be asked to set up a mnemonic phrase to secure your wallet. This will also serve as the key to restore your Theta wallet in case you lose your device, or need to move your Theta wallet to a new device. This feature allows you to effectively keep your Theta Tokens in cold storage. After storing your tokens in the Theta wallet, and making 100% sure you have safely recorded your mnemonic phrase, you are not required to keep the Theta wallet installed. As long as you maintain access to that mnemonic phrase, you can at any time re-install the wallet on any supported device and your tokens will be safely held at the same Theta address you previously stored them at. Of course, that’s not always convenient to install the wallet each time you want to move tokens. But if security is paramount, it is a secure way to store your tokens offline until we are able to integrate Ledger/Trezor hardware wallet support for the Theta blockchain.
