When you use Arculus™ to store your private keys, even if your phone is lost or stolen, no one will be able to access your crypto. Because Arculus uses 3-factor authentication, you need your PIN, biometric and Arculus Key™ Card to access your crypto. These three factors of authentication act like a vault keeping your private keys, and hence crypto, safe and out of the wrong hands.

Here are the steps to take if you need to Restore your Wallet to a new phone (or other mobile device):

  1. Open the Arculus Wallet™ App on your new phone.
  2. Tap “Get Started.”
  3. Present the Arculus Key Card to the back of the phone (or other mobile device) as instructed.
  4. Select “Restore Wallet.”
  5. Create a 6 number PIN.
    1. Note: Recovering a wallet and creating a new PIN during the restore phase will overwrite any previous PIN associated with the Arculus Key Card, so the PIN for all devices will be the most recent PIN created.
  6. Confirm 6 number PIN.
  7. Type in the 12-word secret passphrase (Note: should be all lowercase) and hit “Restore.”
  8. Present the Arculus Key Card to the back of the phone (or other mobile device) as instructed - this may take a few moments, so please leave the Arculus Key Card attached to the back of the phone (or other mobile device).
  9. Click “Get Started” / “Go to the Home Screen.
  10. Your Arculus wallet is now restored!
