This article will demonstrate how to import a wallet into the NuFi Chrome Browser Extension using a recovery phrase. Before doing this, you will need to install NuFi's Chrome extension; read this article for help with this.
You will need to have your 12, 15 or 24-word seed phrase to hand. If you don't have this, please see the article ‘Show Recovery Phrase’ for information on how to obtain your NuFi recovery phrase.
Please note that if you are importing a wallet with a recovery phrase, any hardware wallets accounts will not be restored and will have to be re-imported. In contrast, importing via a wallet backup will contain both mnemonic and hardware accounts, plus any wallet customisations. It is the easiest and fastest way to import your wallet to another device. To restore a wallet from a backup file, please see the article ‘Import Wallet using Backup file’.
