This article will demonstrate how to import a NuFi wallet backup into the NuFi browser Extension. Before doing this, you will need to install NuFi's browser extension; read this article for help with this.
There are two parts to this process:
Part 1: Create a wallet backup from your existing NuFi wallet via wallet.nu.fi. It is recommended that you create a new backup to ensure you import the most up-to-date version of your wallet.
Part 2: Import the backup in the NuFi browser Extension wallet.
If you already have an up-to-date wallet backup, skip to Part 2.
You can also restore a wallet using a recovery phrase; however, with this method, any hardware wallets will need to be re-imported and any customisations will need to reconfigured. Please see the article ‘Recovery Phrase Restore’ for further information on this.
