Please note: This step is crucial if you plan on using your wallet in the long term. We cannot recover your account for you, so you must keep track of this information yourself.
MEW does not collect any personal information about users and has absolutely no access to user wallets. We highly advise backing up your wallet BEFORE sending any crypto to it.
After creating your wallet, a pop up will appear giving you the option to ‘Back-up Now’ or ‘I’ll Risk it’.
Select ‘Back up Now’. Read the warning and then click 'Back up now' again.
Get a pen and a piece of paper, then write down the 24 words that appear.
