Set a passcode

Cancoin

Cancoin’s Passcode feature allows you to create a simple password that encrypts and stores your 12-word mnemonic in their browser and can be used to sign transactions and send bitcoin in it’s place.

When you create a passcode, the encryption and decryption of your mnemonic happens in your browser and never exists on Cancoin servers. Because of this, each new device or browser you access your wallet on (desktop, mobile, etc) will require the creation of a new passcode to enable the Passcode functionality.

 

To add a Passcode on a new device:

  1. Login to your account and navigate to Account Settings > Passcode
  2. Enter your 12 word mnemonic and passcode twice for confirmation
  3. Click create passcode
 

To remove a Passcode from your device:

  1. Login to your account and navigate to Account Settings > Passcode
  2. Click ‘Remove passcode’
