A 12-word recovery phrase will be generated for you which acts as a backup for your crypto funds. Make sure you write it on paper and keep it in a safe place where no one can have access. Or copy it and save it somewhere secure online e.g Google Drive. This is important because whoever has access to this 12-word phrase can steal your funds.
Step 3: Confirm your 12-word phrase
Once you copied or written the 12-word phrase, verify the secret phrase by entering them in the correct order.
Your wallet is now ready and you can now send, recieve, and manage multiple coins like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin and many more.
Trust Wallet is not like your bank. Trust Wallet does not manage your money or even control it. The fund is fully controlled by you.
If you lost this 12-word phrase, no one including Trust Wallet can be able to recover your funds.
It is strongly recommended to keep your 12-word phrase in the safest place. That is the only way you can have access to your funds in case you got another phone or deleted the app.
