  1. If Core extension is not already installed, navigate to the Chrome store to download the extension on the Chrome browser.

  2. Click on the Core extension icon in the browser to be redirected to the login screen.

NOTE: Core extension is currently only officially released on Chrome. Users may face unexpected issues on non-Chrome browsers.

Users will have three options for creating a new Core wallet. For information on accessing an existing wallet, please refer to this article.

Sign up with Google

  1. Select Google.

  2. Users will be prompted to log in with a Gmail account. If users want to use a different Google account than the one currently used for their Chrome profile, they will need to add one manually.

  3. Users are required to add a recovery method for their account.

  4. Follow the steps for completing the setup for the recovery method chosen.

  5. Create a name and password to use when accessing the wallet.

Sign up with Apple ID

  1. Select Apple ID.

  2. Enter the login information for the Apple ID to be used with this wallet.

  3. Users are required to add a recovery method for their account.

  4. Follow the steps for completing the setup for the recovery method chosen.

  5. Create a name and password to use when accessing the wallet.

Sign up with a Recovery Phrase

  1. Select Recovery Phrase.

  2. Copy the recovery phrase displayed on the screen. Record this somewhere safe and secure.

  3. After acknowledging that losing this recovery phrase can lead to loss of funds, click Next.

  4. Select the appropriate recovery phrase words as prompted and click Save.

  5. Create a name and password to use when accessing the wallet.

NOTE: Do NOT share your Recovery Phrase with anyone else. It will give others access to the wallet and its funds, which could lead to permanent loss.
