How to recreate wallet (forgot password)

I forgot my wallet password. How can I create another wallet?

I was not asked to save my recovery phrase during the process (or UI was not intuitive, clear enough how to do it. I think this should be improved as many people are having this issue)

I think this screen should be improved. Maybe it would be good idea if password would be required once more before after this screen in order to make sure that users don’t loose money.

Users should not be able to press skip as well.


Description of the issue:

Is the issue occurring on a specific network?
No

What operating system are you using?
MacOS

Brave Version (check About Brave): 1.62.56

Hello! You can remove the local wallet password by importing the same recovery phrase into Brave Wallet. This will prompt you to create a new password.

There are additional prompts that inform users the recovery phrase must be kept safe as well. I have listed other examples for clarity.


Here’s some additional info on how the recovery phrase works.

Thanks again!

I think that it is too easy to press “skip” step. I think this is the only problem. IMO - it would be better to simply remove it or show it only if specific setting is turned on (it can make more harm than good)
