Here are a few important points to keep in mind:

  • Wallets that are imported with a private key will only have the option to view the private key. The seed phrase option is not available for these wallets.
  • Private key accounts are not tied to the wallet's seed phrase. They have a separate seed phrase that was generated when the wallet was created.
  • If you do not see the option to view the seed phrase or private key, it means you are using a Ledger wallet. Ledger wallets do not have these options visible in Phantom and it's important to never use your Ledger seed phrase in Phantom.
