Export a Profile
Exporting a profile allows users to back up and restore their ARKVault profiles when required. The exported backup file includes all wallets and profile settings. Please note that this file does not contain any mnemonic recovery phrases. If the exported profile is password protected, the backup file will also require a password when importing it. The following information will explain how to create a backup from:
- ARKVault, and
- The ARK Desktop Wallet v2
ARKVault currently supports importing profile backups from ARKVault and the ARK Desktop Wallet v2.
