Set Up Your Wallet
First, open the app. Now, place your Arculus Key™ Card on a flat surface, with the back facing up. Reference the card placement visuals above, and find your correct phone model to ensure the card is correctly aligned to the back of your phone. Tap “Create a New Wallet” from the configuration menu, and then leave your card and phone aligned until setup shows complete.
Create a 6-Digit PIN
To set-up your 3-factor authentication protocols, first create a secure and safe 6-digit PIN. Enter your PIN, confirm the PIN. Once confirmed, close out the PIN process by tapping your Arculus Key™ card to the back of your phone.
Write Down Your 12-Word Recovery Phrase
Next, you'll see a 12-word phrase displayed on the app. This is your recovery phrase, which is the only way to recover your wallet should your card or phone ever be lost or stolen. For safe keeping, go analog. Do not screenshot or store your recovery phrase on a device. Write down your 12-word phrase and save it in a safe place separate from your Arculus Wallet™ App. This phrase will only be shown to you once.
Re-enter Your 12-word phrase
On the next screen, you’ll be asked to re-enter your 12-word phrase into the Arculus Wallet™ App. Tap on the words in the correct order and they will populate into the “My Secret Phrase” box. When the secret phrase is selected correctly, hit “Confirm.” To remove a word from the box, tap on the word and it will go back to the bottom of the screen.
