πŸ“±Install a Solana Wallet on Mobile

In this tutorial you will learn how to install a crypto wallet on your mobile phone.

1. Download the Phantom app - a digital wallet tailored for Solana

On iOS go to https://apps.apple.com/us/app/phantom-crypto-wallet/id1598432977

On Android go to https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=app.phantom

Heads up! It is very important that you trust the source you are installing from. If you install from an unsafe source, you may install a version of the app that can be hacked and your funds will be lost.

If you want to check out the links, head over to the official Phantom website and click on App Store or Google Play icons to download.

You also need to make sure the official website link is correct. Here it is, the official NeoLine website is https://phantom.app/download.

The tutorial was made using Android screens, but iOS screens are very similar and you will have no problem proceeding based on them.

My phone is set to English by default, so the screens may be a little different on your phone if you have it set to another language.

2. Since this is your first time, click on β€œCreate a new wallet”

3. Decide to enable or not biometric security

You can decide to enable biometric security at the β€œProtect your Wallet” screen and click β€œNext”. This secures your wallet using a fingerprint or facial recognition to ensure you are the only one that can access it. This is optional, if you wish you can click "Next" without enabling too.

4. Review and store you Secret Recovery Phrase

You will be presented with your β€œSecret Recovery Phrase (aka β€˜seed phrase).” Be sure to store your Secret Recovery Phrase in a safe and secure location!

The word order is relevant for you to be able to recover your wallet. Also, do not translate the words to other languages, if you need to recover your wallet the words need to be written in English.

Your Secret Recovery Phrase is the MOST important part of your new wallet:

  • Whoever has access to your Secret Recovery Phrase will have access to the wallet’s funds.

  • If you lose your Secret Recovery Phrase, you will lose access to your wallet and its funds.

  • Phantom team does not have access to your Secret Recovery Phrase.

  • Phantom team members will never ask you for your Secret Recovery Phrase.

  • Your Secret Recovery Phrase is the only way to recover your wallet

Once you have safely stored your Secret Recovery Phrase click "Yes", you have now created your digital wallet, click on β€œGet Started” to start using Phantom.

Note: You can enable notifications to get instant updates about your wallet activity. These can also be customized in the Phantom app Settings > Notifications.

5. Copying the Public Address

The public address is a code that you share with others so they can send you coins.

The public address is like your bank account number, or your bank key.

The format of this address changes according to different blockchains. Phantom is a multi network wallet but for this mission we will use Solana address.

Your address will appear on the lower part of your screen when you click on Account 1 located at the top. Click on copy on the Solana address

6. All ready! Now post your public address on Discord

Go to Mission 1 in Discord Server where you are following the knowledge trail and submit your Solana wallet public address you just copied to earn 1 MELK.

A quick reminder! Your Secret Recovery Phrase ensure the security of all your tokens. Don't save them on your phone or computer, just write them down with a pen on a piece of paper and never share it with anyone. Some scam sites will ask you for this code to recover your wallet, but you must never share it.
