How to perform a full backup for your byte wallet.
After the recent byteball airdrop to steemians, it is expected that so many of us have bytes tied up in our smart wallet which will be released one year after it was received.
It is necessary to backup your byteball wallet in case you lose your phone, something unexpected happened to your device holding your wallet or something else we cannot envisage.
Most of us have backed up wallet seed but that isn't enough. Recovering wallet from seed won't recover your byte tied up in your smart wallet. The best backup to perform is the full backup.
So here's a series of steps to perform a full backup.
- Open your byteball wallet, navigate to settings by clicking on the three lines at the top left and go to settings.
- Click on full backup
- Setup your password and click export
You'll see a success message
Congrats your wallet has been fully backed. But you need to save the backup file in a safe location.
- Go to your file manager on your phone, you'll see a newly created folder named "byteball"
Open the folder and there you'll find the backup file.
You can save this file offline or online, whichever way is convenient and secure for you. Saving files like this online seems risky though.
At any point you wish to restore your wallet. Click on settings, then click Restore from full backup
- Upload the backup file by clicking on choose file, input same password you chose in step 3. It's important you don't forget this password.
When all is done, click on import and your backed wallet will be restored.
Note when you restore your wallet, all existing wallets will be deleted permanently.
