How do I back up my wallet to iCloud?

Backing up your wallet to iCloud can be done in a few quick steps. Here’s how:

Step 1: In the DeFi Wallet’s Settings screen, tap Recovery Phrase under the Security section

Step 2: Tap To iCloud in the pop-up window

Step 3: Create a password. This allows you to safely access your wallet when you’re retrieving it from iCloud. Tap Confirm once you have set your password and acknowledged the disclaimer.

Step 4: Congratulations! You have backed up your wallet to iCloud. Please do not delete your wallet’s backup file, as you will risk losing all the assets stored in it.

How do I back up my wallet to Google Drive?

If you’re using the Crypto.com DeFi Wallet on an Android device, backing up your wallet to Google Drive is equally quick. Here’s how:

Step 1: In the DeFi Wallet’s Settings screen, tap Recovery Phrase under the Security section

Step 2: Tap To Google Drive in the pop-up window

Step 3: Sign in to your Google Drive account

Step 4: Create a password. This allows you to safely access your wallet when you’re retrieving it from Google Drive. Tap Confirm once you have set your password and acknowledged the disclaimer.

Step 5: Congratulations! You have backed up your wallet to Google Drive. Please do not delete your wallet’s backup file, as you will risk losing all the assets stored in it.

How do I import my wallet from the cloud?

Importing your wallet from the cloud is just as easy as backing it up to iCloud or Google Drive. Here’s how:

Step 1: When you launch the Crypto.com DeFi Wallet app on a new device, tap Import an existing wallet on the opening screen

Step 2: Tap Continue after reviewing the DeFi Wallet’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

Step 3: Create a 6-digit passcode to secure your access to the DeFi Wallet app

Step 4: Tap Import Via Cloud Service to access your wallet backup files

Step 5: Select the wallet that you’d like to import. On this page, you can also view the wallets you’ve already imported to the DeFi Wallet app.

Step 7: Tap Confirm after entering the password for your wallet’s backup

Step 8: Congratulations! You’ve imported your wallet. You can now access all your assets in it and transact with it across the DeFi Wallet app’s many features.

Is it safe to back up my wallet to iCloud/Google Drive?

When you back up your wallet to iCloud or Google Drive, the file is secured by three layers of protection: The password you create for it, SHA-256 hashing for your password, and AES-256-GCM encryption.

We do not store the password for your wallet’s backup file, nor do we have access to it. Store the password securely as you are fully responsible for your wallet’s backup file and the assets in it. Please ensure you can trust the security measures of your chosen cloud service, and we recommend that you set a strong password for your iCloud and/or Google Drive account.

Additionally, this backup method is completely optional. An alternative method to backing up your wallet would be writing its recovery phrase down and keeping the note in a secure location.
