5. Write down your Recovery Phrase, which is needed to recover access to your account in case of a password loss or if your phone is lost or stolen. The word order is very important.  


You are the only one who has access to the Recovery Phrase. We (the LOBSTR team) do not have access to users' Recovery phrases for security reasons.

  

It is important to store the Recovery Phrase securely since anyone knowing it gets full control over your account and funds.
