3. You will be prompted to enter a strong password, follow the prompts to create a good password that you do not use elsewhere. Remember that you must remember this password to unlock your wallets. 

4. Save the password, and click the prompt informing you that backing up your wallet is your responsibility.

Backing up the Lamden Wallet

We’re not done just yet, this is a vital step to ensure you never lose your wallet if your computer breaks or you uninstall the wallet from your browser.

1. Select the glowing “Backup Wallet” option from your wallet dashboard.
2. Select “Backup Wallet” on the right hand side.

Your Options

Option 1: Writing Down the Keys
You can opt to write down your Account Address and Private Key on a piece of paper, that you will securely store in a safe. Remember, if someone finds or steals this paper, they can access your funds.

To do this, select “View Keys” and write down the Account Address and Private Key for your Lamden TAU account.  This will only keep the TAU in your main account secure, but this is what most people need — It won’t keep any TAU that you’ve moved to new accounts for the purpose of interacting with dApps secure.

 

Option 2: Storing the Keystore on Physical Media.
You can Create a Backup File and burn that to a CD/DVD/BluRay or save it on a USB Stick.

Press “Create Backup File”, type a secure password and write that password down on a piece of paper.

Move the file to your storage media, and place the storage media, along with the paper password in a safe place.  Remember, if someone finds or steals the media and paper, they can access your funds.

It’s a good idea to keep two copies, in case the storage media you chose becomes faulty.

Lamden is not responsible for lost or stolen passwords
