Welcome to Coinomi!


Our security has been fiercely battle-tested since 2014, and no user has every been hacked using our wallet.


In order to import your mnemonic from Jaxx, Exodus or any other compartible wallet to Coinomi, please first identify your case:


- I just installed Coinomi, I'm at the first screen, what do I do?


1. Click on "Restore a wallet" button.

2. Enter or scan your 12-word mnemonic. Click "Next"

Note: You can add an additional BIP39 passphrase in this step. Consult this and this article before doing so, and remember: While you can always view your Recovery passphrase inside Coinomi by going to .../Settings/Show Recovery Phrase, you will not be shown your extra BIP39 phrase - only a message that it is enabled. Therefore, make sure you save your extra BIP39 passphrase and keep it safe, should you choose to enable it.

3. Enter a strong password, and re-type to confirm. Click "Next".

Note: The application will prompt you to enter a stronger/more complex password if your current choice does not meet Coinomi's minimum entropy requirements. 

Do NOT press "Skip" in this step, as without this password your passphrase will remain unencrypted on your device, voiding any other security measures you or Coinomi takes to protect your funds. 

(The "Skip" option will be removed in one of our future releases completely.) 

4.  From the Coins list, select as many Coins as you would like to create wallets for. Include the ones you had with Jaxx/Exodus or other wallet. 

Note: If you forget one, you can always add it manually later by going to Menu/+Coins and selecting it.

If your mnemonic contains keys to a coin that is not currently in our coins list, it will not show up in Coinomi. Make sure you manually send the funds to an exchange or other wallet that supports it.

5. Click on "Finish".


- I just installed Coinomi, created a new wallet, a strong password, I was given my Recovery Passphrase, and I have added the coins I want. My balances are currently zero and I'm ready to go!


Unfortunately, you must repeat some of the steps:


1. From the overview page of your Coinomi, click on .../Settings/Restore Wallet

2. Click on "Confirm" at "Override existing wallet?" popup.

3. Enter or scan your 12-word mnemonic. Click "Next"

Note: You can add an additional BIP39 passphrase in this step. Consult this and this article before doing so, and remember: While you can always view your Recovery passphrase inside Coinomi by going to .../Settings/Show Recovery Phrase, you will not be shown your extra BIP39 phrase, but only a message that it is enabled. Therefore, always make sure you save your extra BIP39 passphrase and keep it safe, should you choose to add it.

4. Enter a strong password, and re-type to confirm. Click "Next".

Note: The application will prompt you to enter a stronger/more complex password if your current choice does not meet Coinomi's minimum entropy requirements. 

Do NOT press "Skip" in this step, as without this password your passphrase will remain unencrypted on your device, voiding any other security measures you or Coinomi takes to protect your funds. 

(The "Skip" option will be removed in one of our future releases completely.) 

5.  From the Coins list, select as many Coins as you would like to create wallets for. Include the ones you had with Jaxx/Exodus or other wallet. 

Note: If you forget one, you can always add it manually later by going to Menu/+Coins and selecting it.

If your mnemonic contains keys to a coin that is not currently in our coins list, it will not show up in Coinomi. Make sure you manually send the funds to an exchange or other wallet that supports it.

5. Click on "Finish". 


- I installed Coinomi a while ago, and I have some/many funded wallets in Coinomi already. Won't restoring with a Jaxx/Exodus mnemonic replace my current wallets/balances/funds?


Yes. It will. If you have already installed Coinomi and have already funded your Coinomi wallet(s), it might be easier for you to normally send the coins from the other wallets to Coinomi, since restoring with your Jaxx, Exodus or any other compatible mnemonic would replace your current Coinomi wallets and funds. Please note that we are currently working to implement multi-phrase support, which will make it possible for users to import infinite mnemonics from a variety of wallets, and see all their funds simultaneously. 


If you accidentally already did the above, relax, you can restore your Coinomi wallet(s) again by entering your Coinomi recovery passphrase, and then send the funds directly from these other wallets to Coinomi as mentioned above.


Important note on ETHEREUM wallets:


Contrary to Bitcoin and Bitcoin-derived coins, Ethereum is account-based - there is only one address per account, which is being re-used. Some wallet providers opted to create multiple ETH accounts for their users in order to preserve this Bitcoin-like privacy. Therefore, an additional step is needed after completion of the Restoration process above:


1. Go to Menu/+Coins, and select Ethereum

2. Click on Advanced Settings and type this text in the "Derivation Path (BIP32)" box: M/44H/60H/0H/0
3. Press Add. You should see your ETH being shown in your balances.


- I did all of the above, performed the extra step, and I still don't see my ETH, or I see some of my ETH only.


Users coming from an older version of Jaxx wallet (and maybe others, we have no way to test every compatible wallet out there) will not necessarily see all their Ethereum funds upon completing the extra step. As explained above, some wallet providers opted to create many ETH accounts for their users, to combat the privacy leak of the Ethereum specification. In these rare cases, you would have to repeat the process again, replacing M/44H/60H/0H/0 to M/44H/60H/0H/0/1, M/44H/60H/0H/0/2, etc, untill all of your old Ethereum accounts are showing in your Coinomi balance. We know this is an arduous process, and we suggest users send their ETH to their Coinomi ETH address directly via a normal ETH transaction.


Enjoy your Coinomi.
