While typical non-custodial wallets put you in control of your private keys, the Wirex Wallet goes one step further - it removes the need for private keys altogether.
And without a private key to memorise or keep safe, there’s nothing for an opportunistic hacker to steal.
Instead, the Wirex Wallet uses secure multi-party computation (SMPC) technology, in the form of an encrypted set of secrets distributed between your device and Wirex.
All you need to access your wallet is your face or fingerprint, which means you’re the only one getting in.

Back up your account using biometrics or a QR code by going to Profile then Account recovery. Please note: you will need to do this before you can make any transactions.
