Wallet setup interrupted but wallet seem to exist

Delete the any text above the line separator below before posting


Description of the issue:
I was setting up a wallet and had just entered a password. The next step was supposed to be the recovery phrase. Mine was only 9 words long so I checked for more info but after that I could not get back to the recovery phrase page. Still a wallet was made but I can not use it. I would like block or delete the wallet I can not use and restart the process to make a new wallet if possible, otherwise Brave wallet/browser is useless to me.

Are you using the (new) Brave Wallet or the (old) Crypto wallets implementation?
Newest browser installed today with the new wallet

How can this issue be reproduced?
So far I have not found a way to get back to the page that shows the recovery phrase even though I had no time to write it down or take a picture of it.

Brave Version (check About Brave):

Version 1.46.140 Chromium: 108.0.5359.99 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
It is clear that the recovery phrase is only shown once but I never had a chance to write it down or take a picture. So the wallet is useless to me unless there is a way to either elete or block the wallet that was made and make a new one or to be able to run the set up again.

Hi there,

I tried my best to replicated the experience that you had. I think you might have mistaken the 9 words for a generic picture that we show before we actually show you your seedphrase. We always show 12 words for new wallets.

You can access your recovery phrase here brave://wallet/crypto/backup-wallet and you won’t need to create a new wallet.

thanks,

Hubert

Thank you very much Hubert. That worked a charm and as it turned out I might not have made a wallet the first time because this morning I made a new wallet on my smartphone and turns out the recovery phrase is exactly the same and I end up in the same wallet that I access through my computer. I thought that was not possible yet but in my case whether I use Brave wallet on my phone or computer I get to the same wallet.
Thanks again.
