Mobile FairCoin Wallet

Android Wallet: Download from Google Play Store or from here directly  (may need to allow to install from foreign source).

iOS Wallet: Not yet available. If you are a programmer and want to help on that task, a good starting point may be to adapt copay.


Web based wallet

Another simple way to set up your wallet is to sign up with HolyTransaction. It is hosted by a provider, whom you need to trust. We recommend to use it only for small change for your daily business or for testing.

Wallet Backup

Please note that it is very important to backup your wallet on a regular basis. You can do this by selecting Backup Wallet from the file menu and then save your wallet backup file in a save location.

It is also highly recommended to encrypt your wallet to save your coins from unauthorized access. You can do this by selecting Encrypt Wallet... from the file menu. Please use a very strong passphrase to sufficiently protect your coins.

See here for assistance on how to create a secure password: How you can create a secure password you can remember.
