What is Crypto Wallet Backup?

What is Crypto Wallet Backup_ - post

Crypto wallet backup brings an additional layer of protection to users’ digital assets. Wallet backup is important if the device with the crypto wallet is stolen or lost. Also, there could be technical issues or computer failure and in case there is no backup, the access to the crypto wallet account is lost forever. Another growing problem is that non-custodial crypto wallet holders have a tendency to forget passwords to retrieve their private keys. Nowadays, it’s believed that around $120 billion in crypto is in stranded or lost wallets

Backup helps to import the wallet, install the account on another device and restore the password to it. 

Usually, wallet backup doesn’t take much time, it’s secure and simple. In addition, in the case of the Spatium wallet, crypto wallet backup takes the burden of managing and storing private keys.

Types of crypto wallet backup

Recovery phrase

The recovery phrase is generated at the moment when the user sets up a wallet. It could be 12 words either with or without spaces. Users should be attentive to copy the recovery phrase correctly and not show this set of words to anyone.

Biometric recovery

Biometric backup is an anonymous scanning of a user’s face when mathematical data received from facial biometrics is used to authenticate the wallet owner. The biometric scanning is performed privately and locally. There is no need to store a recovery password, biometric facial scanning guarantees that the same person is accessing the wallet as well as trying to restore the access if required.

Cloud recovery

Cloud backup applies to self-custodial wallets, when there is a third party, helping users communicate with blockchain ecosystems. This is a wallet service provider. As soon as you enable cloud backup in your wallet account, you increase the level of your digital asset protection tenfold. Wallet cloud backup helps you to retrieve the crypto in case of emergency.
