Once the extension package is downloaded, you will see a popup that Yoroi has been added to Chrome, and the Yoroi logo should show up between your extensions on the top right of your Chrome browser. Click it.
To have easy access to the wallet, make sure to pin it to Chrome. To do this, just click on the puzzle symbol followed by the pin icon located beside Yoroi Wallet.
The first option will be to select your language. Continue with English or pick a preferred one from the dropdown.
Now you have the option to enable payment URLs. It is optional and will not change the result if you skip it. You can always enable this feature in Settings.
On the next screen, you’ll be presented with a few choices for connecting a hardware wallet, creating a new wallet, and restoring a wallet. We’ll be creating a new wallet in this tutorial, however, here is info on restoring and connecting a hardware wallet (Ledger/Trezor).
Click on Cardano and next, you’ll be asked to name the wallet and create a spending password. The name is an identifier that helps you to easier find the exact wallet in your app. The password is an additional security layer used to confirm all transactions from this device.
The next step is crucial. You’ll be shown 15 randomly generated words that can be used to recover your wallet and funds as a backup option.
Those words will only be shown to you once, they are the only means to recover a wallet. If you lose these words, your funds are permanently lost.
This string of words is known as the Key Phrase, recovery phrase, and/or seed phrase to generate your exclusive private key.
It is imperative that you carefully record them offline and not on your phone or PC, and safeguard them in a secured location.
Once that’s done, your Yoroi Wallet is ready to use.
