How do I create a wallet?

So you’ve already downloaded and installed Atomic Wallet on your device? Now let’s proceed to create a new wallet. If you already have a wallet and want to restore it - please follow our instructions in this guide.

Note: you can create a wallet even if your device (whether PC or mobile) is offline. You do not need an Internet connection to create a wallet. 


  1. Open the application on your device. 
  2. Click Create Wallet.

  3. Set up a strong and secure password. We recommend using a password manager. If you are creating it yourself, make sure it is different from all other passwords you have ever used. Repeat the password and click Set Password. Let the wallet load. 

    Note: if you forget/lose your password, we won’t be able to provide it. We don’t store any personal information of our users such as passwords/keys/backup phrases.

  4. You are now seeing your 12-word backup phrase.  This is a crucial point for securing your assets. Your backup phrase is very important. You should save the phrase in the most secure way possible. We highly recommend to store it offline in two different places. Write down the phrase. 

    Note: Atomic Wallet doesn’t store any of your personal information such as passwords/keys/backup phrases. You are the only one controlling your funds. Saving your 12-word phrase (backup, seed, recovery phrase) - is the only way to have permanent access to your funds

  5. Another important step on this screen is enabling Atomic Wallet to collect logs. This is an anonymous process with only one purpose - to better assist you in case you ever reach out to us. It is strictly anonymous. More about it here. You can skip this step if you still prefer not to send your anonymous logs. Then click Open Wallet

  6. That’s it! Your wallet is now ready to use. This whole process only needs to be done once.

  1. Open the app. You'll have the option to log into an existing wallet, restore a walle you had before or create a new wallet. Pick New wallet

  2. Now set the password. Make sure it is a unique and secure password that you don’t use for anything else. Click  Set.

    Note: if you forget/lose your password, we won’t be able to provide it. We don’t store any personal information of our users such as passwords/keys/backup phrases.

  3. Confirm your password and let the wallet load.
