Exporting and Importing a Wallet Using a Passphrase

Exporting an Account From Fearless Wallet

If you'd like to export your passphrase, you can do it in several ways: 1. Whole Account (without Unique Secret) 2. Account with Unique Secret (from the Wallet tab) 3. Account with Unique Secret (from the Settings tab)

Options 2 & 3 don't have any "techincal" difference between each other, the only thing that differs is the menu tab you access your passphrase from. So, you're welcome to use the one you find the most convenient.

Whole Account

Account with Unique Secret (from the Wallet tab)

Account with Unique Secret (from the Settings tab)

That's it! You've just successfully exported your account!

Importing to Polkadot.js

To import your wallet to Polkadot.js, open the Polkadot.js extension in your browser

Click on Import account from pre-existing seed, as shown below

Finally, input your seed phrase

Importing an Account to Fearless Wallet

Unfortunately, Polkadot.js does not allow you to export your passphrase once you've created your wallet. (More info here). If you haven't saved your seed phrase, you will have to export the JSON file. Have a look at the next tutorial to learn how to import using a JSON file!

Then click on the Add wallet button and select the "I already have a wallet" option

Select the correct Source type from the drop down menu to use while importing your account.

If you're importing your wallet using the Mnemonic passphrase, you'll have to choose a name for your account in the Fearless Wallet app.

Instead, if you're using a JSON file, you'll also have to type the password you used to protect that wallet on the Polkadot.js extension!
