ARKVault allows you to import two types of backup files:

.json- ARK Desktop Wallet’s legacy profile format
Import an ARKVault Backup

You may then click and drag your
.json file to the outlined section below. Alternatively, you may click on Browse Files to select the backup file manually.
The ability to import a
.json backup from the ARK Desktop Wallet is only temporarily available. We therefore recommend that you re-export your profile in the new
.wwe format using ARKVault and back up this file for safekeeping.
Please wait while the import processes before proceeding further.
Confirm Your Details
If your profile backup is password protected, you will need to enter it in order to access your profile.
In the event that you forget the password for your profile, there is no way to recover it. You will need to create a new profile and re-import your wallets in order to continue using ARKVault.
Enter a name for your imported profile and click on Create when ready.
Backups Without Protection
If your profile backup is not password protected, you will need to enter a name for your profile and set a new password for it if you so desire.
Upon completion, click on Create in order to finalize the process.
In the rare event that you encounter an issue when importing your profile, an error message like the one below will appear. In most instances, this is because your backup profile is corrupt. Click on Retry to re-attempt the import. If the problem persists, please Contact Us so that we can assist you accordingly.
