The mnemonic and the secret keyphrase are different features. The first one is composed of 12 unique words and it is available in your Fractal wallet. On the other hand, the secret keyphrase has 4 words known only to you and Fractal and it appears in our emails. Its purpose is to allow you to validate that these 4 words match to make sure the email's sender is in fact Fractal.


Regarding the mnemonic, we highly recommend you save yours, as it is an important wallet feature and only you have access to it. To do it, please follow these steps:


  1. Open your Fractal wallet;
  2. Click on the 3 dots menu > Backup protocol wallet;
  3. Paste it into a document and save it in a safe place.
