Can I lose access to my funds?

Coinbase Wallet generates a 12-word recovery phrase, also referred to 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 or help you access your digital assets.

Back up your wallet

As an added safeguard, we built an encrypted Google Drive and iCloud feature so you can back up 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.
