Lost password - how do I recover with my Private Key?


#1

Sorry for the completely noob question, but I’ve managed to misplace my password for the desktop OWallet. I do have my Private Key, however. Is it possible to recover the wallet with this? If so, how do I go about it? Thanks much!

Hi there . Thanks for getting in touch.

The good news is, if you have your private key you can access your wallet again no problems. Are you using OWallet or O3 wallet? As they are a bit different. If you are not using O3 wallet, you can head to o3.network and grab the latest version which supports most of the same features as OWallet. From there you can just add a new wallet, enter the private key and it will ask you to create a new password, and you should be good to go.

Let me know if you have any problems
