Please note that this is not a password recovery but a way to identify yourself as the owner of your wallet. Bancor does not store passwords and we do not have any real way to recover an existing password.
There are three methods you can use in order to recover your password
- Keystore File
- Private Key
- Recovery Phrase
Please see below for instructions on recovering your password using each of these options.
To access these options, you will first need to visit the wallet settings on bancor.network
(You will need to log in to your account before you can access wallet settings.)
Go to the profile icon, located at the top right of the page, click on “My Wallet”
Click the gear icon to open the wallet settings
Choose “Forgot Password”
Choose one of the following recovery methods
If you previously saved an encrypted JSON wallet file, you can upload it and unlock it with your password (keep in mind, this recovery process requires you to know the password for that wallet file).
Once you've uploaded the file and signed it successfully, we will save the encrypted file and you will be able to sign future transactions with the password you used when uploading the file.
If you have your wallet's private key saved securely, you will be able to use it to recover access to your wallet.
Once you've entered it successfully, you will be prompted to set a password for your wallet. This password will be used for future transactions you would like to sign using bancor.network
Enter a new password (make sure you save your password somewhere secure).
Recovery / Mnemonic Phrase:
On wallet creation, you were given a 12-word recovery phrase (also known as the mnemonic phrase). You can enter the 12 words into the text box in the correct order and, if valid, you will be able to proceed to the next stage.
Once you've entered the words successfully, you will be prompted to set a password for your wallet. This password will be used for future transactions you would like to sign using bancor.network
Enter a new password (Make sure you save your password)
You have now successfully imported your wallet!!
