What needs to be done to backup the IOTA wallet?

Is it sufficient to keep the seed in a backup location (such as maybe Password Safe or KeePass), or is it also necessary to backup any file from the system where the wallet is installed?


The current wallet is stateless, so when you log out it will not keep any data itself. So keeping the seed in a safe location (or two) is everything you need.

  • thank you mihi. So also if I need to reinstall my entire system I don't necessarily need to backup any files from the wallet? – Eddie Jan 15 '18 at 21:01
  • Yes. Perhaps you want to back up the installer in case you reinstall your system more often :) – mihi Jan 15 '18 at 21:22
