Step 3: Backup Recovery Phrase

The next thing you need to do is make a backup of your recovery phrase. This step must be done before transferring any assets to the wallet. This is a required step as the recovery phrase can help you get your assets back in case you lose your device.

To save your recovery phrase, click the ‘configure now‘ option (see screenshot above). The app will display your backup phrase. Store it safely.

You can write it in a book or on a piece of paper that you will surely never lose.

Once you have backed up your phrase, you will have a Valora account. You can now proceed to add funds to the wallet by tapping on the menu button and selecting the ‘Add/Withdraw Funds’ option.

The app also has other features, including the option to withdraw funds as airtime on local mobile operators.
