How to recover a hidden wallet

This option is only available with the Nano S.
To create a hidden wallet, please refer to this FAQ topic: "Advanced Passphrase option"

------------

To recover your hidden wallet and attach it to a passphrase, just set it exactly how you did when you created it:

  1. if you want to attach it to a passphrase:
    - on your Nano S you must run the 24 words you previously ran when you set your passphrase. If you don't, reset your device and import the correct 24 words
    - go to Settings > Security > Passphrase > Attach to a PIN
    - choose a second PIN code and confirm it (you don't have to choose the same one as the previous one you set with the passphrase)
    set the exact passphrase you want to recover and confirm it
    - validate by entering your first PIN code
     
  2. if you want to set it as temporary:
    - on your Nano S you must run the 24 words you previously ran when you set your passphrase. If you don't, reset your device and import the correct 24 words
    - go to Settings > Security > Passphrase > Set temporary 
    set the exact passphrase you want to recover and confirm it
    - validate by entering your current PIN code
