Restoring the Desktop Wallet

Hello -

Last year I bought some Mobilecoin and put it into the Mobilecoin desktop wallet for Mac. I wound up having to reinstall my system and have just reinstalled the desktop wallet. It is asking me for a password, but I don’t have any record of a password. I do have the 24 word recovery key, but can’t figure out how to recover the desktop wallet with the 24 word key.

How do I do that?

Thanks,
-S

Hi, this is basically just a UX problem. The password is related to the new wallet you are creating when you reinstall the desktop wallet. You can just specify a new password. After that it will ask you for the 24 word key, and you can type in your 24 word key from the previous wallet. It should then restore your balance in the new wallet.
