Step by step guide : Adding a second wallet to your xPortal app!

Sommaire :

The long-awaited new xPortal feature has just been released! From now on, we can have several wallets in the application! Let’s take a step by step look at how to add a second wallet to your application.
For those who do not yet have the application, xPortal is the main wallet for the MultiversX blockchain for smartphones. We have other guides on how to create a wallet on xPortal or how to stack your $EGLD in it.
We are going to assume that you have already installed xPortal and that you have consulted our previous article on how to create a new wallet.

Step 1 : How to add your second wallet

Firstly, click on ”Main wallet”, this will redirect you to a sub-window where you can click on “Add new wallet”. Then another sub-window will prompt you to click on “Import existing wallet”. Let’s do this and go on to the next step.

Step 2 : Import your secret phrase

You will then be asked if you want to import it from the cloud or if you want to restore a secret phrase. In our case we will choose the secret phrase from our second wallet created earlier.

Please note that the security of your wallet depends on this 24 word phrase. Under no circumstances should you save it on a digital medium or share it with anyone! A good practice would be to write it down on a piece of paper that only you know about and that you must be able to find in the event of a problem! We’ll go into more detail on best practice for securing a wallet in a future article.

Now write your 24 words and click on confirm. You will be asked to give a name to this secondary wallet. We’ll call it “Second wallet” for this example. Name it and than confirm.

Step 3 : This is it! Congratulations!

That’s all you need to do to import several Wallets into xPortal! You can now switch from one wallet to another by clicking on its name at the top of the application’s main page!
Take advantage of the simplicity of xPortal and if you have any questions about it, I invite you to join our Discord to ask them.

Some important aspects to keep in mind

  • You can’t add secondary wallets that have a guardian enabled, only the main wallet can be guarded
  • The card showing in the Cash section will be the card from the main wallet regardless of the wallet that you are on
  • Crypto top-ups can only be done from the main wallet at this time
  • Additional functionalities and improvements for the feature will be added progressively
