This step by step tutorial explains to you how to create a new Algorand Wallet Account on Pera Wallet.

Your address is a unique string that is used to publicly identify your account. This is what you'll use if you (or others) want to send assets to your account. Your address will look something like this: RL6VDLXCN5G7N2GRTS7YLVDSFT4PVBBUOVTVS7T26OQ5MLXYQKRMI5ADXY

Your recovery passphrase (also called backup phrase or recovery phrase) is the 25-word string that allows you to recover your account.

It is CRUCIAL to record your backup phrase correctly and store it securely. The only way to recover algorand account is with this backup phrase.* Never share your backup phrase, as anyone with access to it can take full control of your account**. The Pera Wallet support team will never ask for your passphrase.

At this point, we will show you your 25-word recovery passphrase. There is no screenshot of this page in this tutorial as we've blocked or limited screenshot capabilities during recording of your passphrase. Even if your device allows you to screenshot your recovery passphrase, we urge you to explore methods other than a photograph to store this important data.

Again, if you don't know how to securely record your passphrase, please review the tutorial available on the Backing Up Your Recovery Passphrase page.

You'll then verify the passphrase has been recorded successfully by selecting a few key words in the phrase.

Name your account: at this point, you can name your account for convenience. It will help you keep organized between your different accounts. This doesn't interact with the blockchain at all, it's merely an organizational feature.

That's it! You should see the newly created account on your Accounts view. If this was your first time creating an account, you'll only see 1 account. You can now navigate through the App, add Algos or other assets, and send/receive transactions to other wallets address.

Important Notes:

You can create as many Algorand accounts within the Pera wallet, but each account has its own backup (recovery) passphrase. For security reasons, there is no total wallet recovery, only individual account recovery. Use caution when recording and storing your passphrase. It's the only way to recover your account.

Pera wallet is a non-custodial wallet, meaning that you (and only you) are in complete control over the management of your account and the assets in it. No other person or entity has access to your accounts. This also means that no company, corporation, or government could ever take control of your account. Only the person who has the 25-word passphrase can access the assets. However, with this power comes responsibility. If you lose your 25-word recovery passphrase that unlocks the account, no one can grant you access.
