Restore your wallet

Select the wallet backup file and click “Restore” alt text

Next input the recovery password for that wallet.

Attention: There will be no error if you input a different recovery password than the one you used when you created your wallet. The BitBox01 does not store information about your recovery password and therefore can’t “check” if it is the same one you used before or not. If you cannot find your funds after you restored you have most likely inputed a different recovery password. In that case, please restore from your backup again and make sure that you input the same recovery password you used when you created your wallet.

Check the box and click “Restore”.

Done! Start using your BitBox01

You have successfully restored your wallet and can continue using your BitBox01 as usual.

Please make sure you store your backup microSD card in a secure location and that you don’t lose your recovery password. Reminder: Only the backup microSD + recovery password allows you to restore your wallet. One of the two is not enough.
