Make sure you can always access your account by saving your secret key. With your secret key, you can access your account via API even if you are locked out of the Stellar client.
How to find and save your secret key
- Go to to your “settings”
- Click “reveal” under your secret key
- Store this secret key safely. You can print it, or even write it down on a piece of paper. Do not save it on your computer or send it in an email. If someone gets access to your secret key, your account will no longer be secure.
Note: your secret key is different from your recovery code.
