Step 2: Next, you will select your account’s security and recovery method. Because the NEAR Wallet is entirely non-custodial, account access is entirely your responsibility. There are three methods to choose from, including Secure Passphrase, Ledger Hardware Wallet, and Email. We recommend you select Secure Passphrase if you don’t have a Ledger hardware device. After that, click “Secure My Account.

Important: The seed phrase is only as safe as you keep it! If you want to keep access to your account, you must write down your seed words in the correct order and keep them safe. If you lose your seed words, your account is permanently lost.

Step 2: As instructed in the “create a new account” section 1, in this step you also do the same. First, you select a Security Method, and then you write down 12 recovery words to keep secret and physically store them in a secure location. Finally, you click on “Verify & Complete”.

Note: Because the words must be written in the correct order. Make a note of the number that corresponds to them. If you forget your secret pass, you will be locked out of your account indefinitely.

Step 3: Next, you have a balance of at least 0.1 NEAR to fund and initialize your new account. And then, click “Approve” and wait until the transaction is confirmed.
