How to Setup Nano Wallet Online

Introduction

This article will guide you through individual steps on how to create an online wallet using Nanowallet.io website. We recommend this as the minimum security measure for storing your Nano after purchasing from an exchange. The guide will present you images of each step and also guide you on safety best-practices, such as creating locked PDF’s.

Step 1

Nanowallet.io Registration

Head over to Nanowallet.io by >clicking here< and make sure you are on the right site by inspecting the secure “https” certificate and that it indeed spells https://nanowallet.io/

You will be notified that the wallet registration was successful. Now before you click “Go to Your Wallet” copy the Identifier and Seed one by one and paste them into a google docs or word document. (keep your nanowallet.io tab open)

Step 2

Secure Nano Seed

Create a new Word/Google document and paste both the identifier and seed into the document.

Make sure to clear your clipboard after copy/pasting your seed and identifier!

Next, download or save the document as PDF document, and make sure you delete the word/google docs after you have saved it as PDF and empty your trash.

Now open the PDF document using standard adobe acrobat reader and navigate to the file->properties->security tab as seen in below image. From the security method dropdown menu select the “Password Security” option.

You will see that once you try opening the PDF it now requires a password. Keeping the file name to something general will further draw less attention to it (e.g. “groceries”). You can copy the document to your google/dropbox drive as backup.

Optionally you can >click here< to purchase an AES 256 encrypted USB to copy your secured PDF on giving you 2 layers of security.

Step 2

Withdraw Nano

Now that we’ve sorted your seed and identifier you can go back to your nanowallet tab and click on “Go to Your Wallet” to be redirected to your Nano wallet home. Moving to the right-hand side you will see your account. You may create as many wallets as you need or rename them (e.g. “Nano Wallet”, “Business Account” etc.).

Depending on your exchanges security measures, you will need to confirm your withdrawal request (e.g. email, 2fa or phone/sim verification). Once you verified the withdraw request you will receive a success notification.
