  2. App Store Navigation: For iOS users, explore the Apple App Store, while Android users should visit the Google Play Store.
  3. App Installation: Search for your selected wallet and install the official app from the store.

Setting Up Your Wallet on Mobile:

  1. Opening the App: Launch the installed wallet app.
  2. Initial Setup Choices: New users can opt to create a new wallet, while existing users may import their wallet.
  3. Agreeing to Terms: Accept the app's terms and conditions before proceeding.
  4. Account Security Setup: Follow the app's instructions to generate a new set of keys.
  5. Password and Seed Phrase: Set up a strong password and generate your seed phrase, a critical recovery tool for your wallet. Ensure its security by writing it down and storing it safely.
  6. Seed Phrase Confirmation: Re-enter your seed phrase as instructed to confirm its accuracy.

Important Reminders:

  • Secure your seed phrase meticulously.
  • Always use official sources for app downloads.
  • Familiarize yourself with the wallet's functionalities.

Opening the App and Setting Up Your Wallet

  1. Launch the Wallet App: After installing the wallet app on your mobile device, tap on the app icon to open it.
  2. Initial Choice: Upon opening the app for the first time, you will generally be presented with two options:
  • Create a New Wallet: This is for users who are setting up their new Web3 wallet for the first time.
  • Import an Existing Wallet: This option is for users who already have a wallet and wish to access it on the device you’re logged into while viewing the app.

Creating a New Wallet

  1. Agree to Terms and Conditions: You might first need to agree to the app’s terms and conditions

  2. Secure Account Creation: The app will prompt you to create a new wallet. This process involves generating a new set of private and public keys.

  3. Password Creation: You will be asked to create a strong password. This password will be used to access your wallet on this device.

  4. Seed Phrase Generation: The most crucial step is the generation of a seed phrase (also known as a recovery phrase or backup phrase). This is a series of 12 to 24 words generated by the wallet. The seed phrase is essentially the master key to your wallet.

  5. Write Down Seed Phrase: It is imperative that you write down this seed phrase and store it in a safe and secure place. Never store it digitally or share it with anyone.

  6. Verify Seed Phrase: To ensure you have correctly noted down your seed phrase, the app will usually ask you to re-enter the phrase in the correct order.

Key Points to Remember:

  • Your seed phrase is the key to your wallet. Keep it secure and never share it.
  • Always download wallet applications from official sources to avoid scams.
  • Familiarize yourself with the wallet's features and settings for a smooth experience.

IF you’re not asked to switch networks:

  3. Adding a New Network: At the bottom of this list, there’s often an option to add a new network or access advanced settings. This option might be labeled as "Add Network," "Custom RPC," or something similar.

  4. Input Network Details: After selecting the option to add a network, you'll need to input specific details for the Polygon network, such as the RPC URL, Chain ID, currency symbol (MATIC), and a block explorer URL.
