Bridge Wallet is the free mobile app that we have made to easily invest in Ethereum assets from your phone. Download the app, install it and then launch it.
The first step after launching the app is to create a password and confirm it, which will allow you to access the wallet later on.
Make sure to choose a password that you will remember, as there isn't any "I forgot my password" option for security reasons.
Choose here the "Create a new wallet" option. The other option is to access an existing address in case you already have one.
Choose here the "Generate a secret phrase" option. The split secret phrase is an advanced form of secret phrase, if you don't know what it is you can ignore it.
These few screens introduce you to basic safety practices regarding the management of your secret phrase and wallet.
We strongly recommend that you read them carefully, even if it's not your first time creating a crypto wallet. A refresher never hurts!
You will now see your secret phrase, which is the only way to access and restore your wallet and all its content.
Never share your secret phrase, make sure you write it down now and store it somewhere safe.
If someone else gets access to your secret phrase, you will lose your wallet's content.

Let's verify here that you have backed up your secret phrase properly. If you haven't, you can still click "Back" to do so. It's really important to do it correctly now, so you will be all set from now on.
This check won't ask you all the words, only a few of them. Make sure to enter the seed word number asked.
That's it, you're done creating a new Ethereum wallet!
You can now start using your wallet to send, receive, buy and sell Ethereum assets, as well as share your public Ethereum address in the "Addresses" tab of the app.
