Can I lose access to my Wallet funds?

Coinbase Wallet generates a 12-word recovery phrase, known as a ‘seed', that you and only you have access to. This means that if you lose your recovery phrase, you will lose access to your Coinbase Wallet. Please keep in mind that Coinbase will never have access to this recovery phrase, so we cannot move funds on your behalf nor can we help you access digital assets in your Coinbase Wallet should you lose your recovery phrase.

As an added safeguard, we built an encrypted Google Drive and iCloud feature so you can backup your recovery phrase. We strongly encourage you to back up your recovery phrase using this feature, as well as writing it down and storing it in a secure location. To access the backup feature, tap Settings then Recovery Phrase from your Coinbase Wallet app.
