Import a wallet using Private Key

Step by step guide to import a personal wallet using private key.

Step 1: Select "Add Wallet"

Add a personal EOA wallet so you can sign transactions in Nest Wallet.

Step 2: Select "Import Existing"
Step 3: Select "Private Key"

Step 4: Enter or Confirm password

If it's the first time you import an EOA wallet, you will be prompted to create a password. This password will be used to encrypt and secure your wallet keys.

If you have imported a wallet before, you will be prompted to confirm that password you have set before. Otherwise you will only have READ-only access for the wallets under this account.

Note: this password is NEVER saved by Nest Wallet. If you forget your password, you will need to reset it and re-imported all wallets in your account to be able to perform any transaction.

Step 5: Enter the Private Key

Paste in the private key of your wallet and Click Import

Note that Nest Wallet will never have access to your keys. Everything is encrypted and stored locally.

Step 6: Add name for the newly imported wallet
Step 7: Complete

Congratulations! You have successfully added an EOA wallet to Nest Wallet!
