Why is it important to secure my Backup Phrase immediately after creating a new Jaxx wallet?


We recommend that you write down your 12-word Backup Phrase in the exact sequence as soon as you create your wallet as your funds and private keys are tied to your unique mnemonic. Your 12-word Backup Phrase allows you to restore your Jaxx wallet and regain access to your funds at any time on any of our 9 platforms. 

In the unlikely event that Jaxx, as a company, is no longer around, you may also use your 12-word phrase to transfer your existing funds in Jaxx to a similar wallet service that utilizes the mnemonic system.
