NOTE: Users are only able to import private keys for EVM-compatible wallets into Core. If a Bitcoin address is associated with the private key but has a derivation path not supported by Core, the Bitcoin balance will not show up in your wallet.

Users must have an existing Core wallet before importing additional accounts using a private key.

1. In the Accounts screen, select the "Imported" tab.

2. Enter the Private Key.

DISCLAIMER: DO NOT share this with anyone else. No one at Ava Labs or Avalanche Foundation will EVER ask you for your Recovery Phrase, private keys, or password. If this information is given to another party, it will let them access the wallet, and this CAN NOT be reversed.

For any additional questions, please view our other knowledge base articles or contact a support team member via the chat button.
