To get started with the Coinbase Wallet mobile app, you can create a new self-custody wallet or import an existing wallet. The Coinbase Wallet mobile app is available in the App Store for iPhone or in the Google Play Store for Android.
Import an existing wallet
Import another wallet provider like MetaMask, Trust Wallet, and more into your Coinbase Wallet. Most Ethereum-based wallets have a 12-word recovery phrase, which acts as the key to your wallet. Recovery phrases allow you to transfer your assets from one self-custody wallet provider to another.
To import an existing wallet, you’ll need the 12-word recovery phrase (also known as a seed phrase) from your current wallet provider.
When you import another wallet into Coinbase Wallet, your passwords for that specific wallet will not be imported over to Coinbase Wallet and are not recoverable by any wallet provider.
There is no impact on your existing wallet when you import it to Coinbase Wallet. You will be able to use your existing wallet and recovery phrase across multiple providers. Any transactions you make with one wallet provider will show up across all of your wallet providers.
Find your recovery phrase
Select a wallet provider below for steps on how to find your 12-word recovery phrase. Then follow the above steps outlined under Import an existing wallet to successfully import your wallet.
