Create, apply, change and what to do when forgot password
This document will show you some features you need to know when you use SubWallet for the first time.
If you have been using the current version of SubWallet extension wallet, when updating to the new official version, SubWallet will ask you to create and apply a master password to your existing accounts.
If you have already used SubWallet before and are migrating to the new version, we would ask you to create and apply a password to your existing accounts. Please read the corresponding guide to see if it correctly describes your situation.
In order to change your password, you would need to remember your old password. This function cannot help you if you forget your password and want to restore it.
After creating the master password, we would ask you to apply the newly created master password to all your accounts.
You would need your old password for each account to confirm the change.
Step 1: Click Apply master password to continue.
Step 2: Enter your old password for each and every account you are managing with SubWallet and click Next.
In this example, we are managing 04 accounts with SubWallet.
Step 3: Your master password has been successfully applied! Click Finish to go to the Home screen.
