3. Set a Password

As a part of wallet account creation, you need to set a strong password to access the Martian Wallet on your current device.

Remember, the password gets stored on your device, not on the server of Martian Aptos Wallet. Hence, the wallet team cannot recover your password if it is lost.

However, you can reset the password by yourself with the recovery phrase, which we will talk about in the next step.

Now, enter the password with a minimum of 8 characters, including a special character and a number.

Click “Continue”.

4. Backup the Recovery Phrase

Since Martian Aptos Wallet is a decentralized wallet, the recovery phrase alone will give you full access to your wallet and funds.

Hence, store the recovery phrase with best practices. Always, store it in a physical format rather than a digital one.

After setting the password, the wallet displays your recovery phrase.

Write it down on a piece of paper and save it securely. Since the recovery phrase is unique to each wallet account holder and gives full access to your account, you must not share it with anyone.

Once you have taken a backup, click “Continue”.

Installing and creating a Martian Aptos Wallet account is a simple task.

Setting up the password and backing up the recovery phrase are the two essential steps involved in creating the Martian Aptos Wallet account.
