7. Once you are signed in to the Pi Browser, you will be greeted with a welcome page featuring various icons. Click on the “wallet.pi” icon.

8. On the wallet page, click on “GENERATE WALLET.”

9. A unique passphrase will be generated for your wallet. It is crucial to store this passphrase securely, as it serves as the password to access your Pi coins. Copy the passphrase and save it in a secure location that is only accessible to you or someone you trust.

Note: Losing your passphrase will result in permanent loss of access to your wallet and the inability to recover your Pi coins. Keep your passphrase private and do not share it to someone you don’t trust.

Step 4: Securing Your Pi Wallet

If you did not set up biometric authentication during the wallet creation process, you may need to “UNLOCK WITH PASSPHRASE” to set up your desired biometric login method, such as fingerprint or facial recognition.

Pro Tip: Enabling biometric authentication adds an extra layer of security to your Pi wallet, ensuring that only you can access your funds.

Using Your Pi Wallet

Once you have successfully logged into your Pi wallet, you will be greeted with the Balance page, which initially contains 100 Test-Pi. It is important to note that Test-Pi is not the real Pi currency and holds no value; it is solely used for testing purposes.
