Auto-download Wallet Backup Codes


#1

I just lost access to my brave wallet when reinstalling to try to fix an issue. It is my fault for not backing that up but I didn’t think about it before.

It would be really nice if the browser just opened a download dialogue to save the backup codes when the wallet was created in about:preferences#payments

If Brave is to be used by people not familiar with the necessary backing up of wallets with cryptocurrency they might reinstall to fix an issue just like I did and lose access to their wallets.

There are probably some security issues and I’m not sure on the possibility of implementation.

Should be for all platforms that can create wallets but I am on Elementary OS(Ubuntu based) using Snap version

It is tracked on https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/4847

do you have any grounds on this assertion?

Oh, thanks, I do not.
