Accessing a shorter seed


HI Admin
Guides

How do I access my shorter seed?

Seeds shorter than 60 characters are not allowed to be entered in the light wallet GUI unless a change to preferences is made:

Tools” > “Options” > “Allow short seed

It is HIGHLY recommended that all seeds be 81 characters to maximize security! After you access your "short" seed, create a new 81-character seed, generate a receive address, and send all iotas from your old "short" seed to your new 81-character seed.

For instructions on generating a new 81-character seed, see below:
