How to migrate from the Solflare app

  • Updated

For Solflare Wallet app users, moving your assets to the Phantom iOS app and Android app is an easy three-step process. 

  1.  Install Phantom
  2.  Find your secret recovery phrase in the Solflare app
  3.  Import your secret recovery phrase to Phantom

1.  Install the Phantom mobile app

If you already have Phantom installed, skip this step.

Phantom is currently available for mobile devices and a number of browsers. To install the Phantom, please visit https://phantom.app/download.

2.  Find your secret recovery phrase (mnemonic phrase) in Solflare

If you already have your seed words safely stored and accessible, skip this step.

To start, open and unlock your Solflare Wallet to click on the Settings icon in the bottom right. Next, tap on the wallet name at the top >  Select "Edit" > Select the gear icon (⚙️) next to the wallet > Select "Export Recovery Phrase".

Please note this step is extremely sensitive! Solflare's “Recovery phrase'' is the equivalent of what Phantom refers to as the Secret Recovery Phrase. Under no circumstances, should you ever share this with anyone. If someone has your Secret Recovery Phrase, they will have total control over your wallet. Phantom will NEVER ask you for your Secret Recovery Phrase or private key. 

To safely transfer over your recovery phrase to Phantom, we recommend manually writing the 12-word backup down in a safe place that is offline.

3.  Import your secret recovery phrase in Phantom

When you successfully install the Phantom app on mobile, you should see a welcome screen as below. Click "I already have a wallet" and you should now be in the Phantom onboarding experience.

Now you will now need to type in the 12-word Secret Recovery Phrase or "Recovery Phrase" that you wrote down from Solflare.

After submitting your secret recovery phrase, you should find that Phantom has all of your previously used addresses derived!

Please note you can only use one Secret Recovery Phrase with Phantom at a time. If you already have a wallet set up and you would like to use a different one, go into Settings," scroll down to the bottom and click "Reset Secret Recovery Phrase". 

For your security, please make sure you have written down your Secret Recovery Phrase and stored it somewhere safe.
