How often should I verify my wallet?

It is good practice to periodically verify your wallet backups to make sure that:
  • You know where to find your wallet backups
  • Your wallet backups are still intact and haven't been damaged
We recommend to do this every 6 months or once per year.

If you are using microSD card wallet updates, this process is easy. Just follow this guide: Verify microSD card wallet backup

If you are using 24 recovery words, written down on paper or steel you should check that you can still find them and that they can still be read.
