During the HASHWallet configuration process, you can make as many copies of your Recovery Seed as you need. To do this, you must have as many Recovery Cards as you want to make at the time of the onboarding process of the HASHWallet.
Once the onboarding process has been completed, neither the Recovery Seed nor the Recovery Key can be generated again from the card.
If you have lost your Recovery Card, there are two possible scenarios:
1. I have more copies of the Recovery Card.
- I have only saved the Recovery Seed
You don't risk not being able to get your HASHWallet back. You can recover your HASHWallet at any time with the Recovery Card and Recovery Key copies.
The person who finds the Recovery Card will not be able to do anything with it.
- I have saved the Recovery Seed and Recovery Key.
In this case, the risk of storing both items together has become a reality. Anyone who finds that Recovery Card and has a HASHWallet will be able to retrieve your HASHWallet (except in the case that you used a biomedical Recovery Card or your fingerprints as an additional recovery factor).
2. I don't have any more copies of the Recovery Card.
If this were to happen, you would be running the risk that in the event that you lost your HASHWallet or it broke down, you would have permanently lost access to your funds.
Therefore you should migrate the accounts of that HASHWallet as soon as possible. To perform this operation you have several options:
- Use the same HASHWallet
First, you will need to purchase a new Recovery Card and migrate your HASHWallet accounts to another temporary wallet. Once this step has been completed and it has been thoroughly verified that there are no funds left in those wallets, you must reset the HASHWallet to factory settings.
After this process, you would register the HASHWallet again by creating the Recovery Elements and new keys. When you finish the onboarding you can migrate the funds back to your HASHWallet.
Your previous HASHWallet accounts will no longer be accessible to you in any way.
- Use another HASHWallet
You migrate funds from the HASHWallet where you lost the Recovery Card to the new HASHWallet or where you have access to all your recovery items.
- Use another Wallet
Migrate the funds from the HASHWallet where you lost the Recovery Card to another Wallet you have available.
