Jaxx 1.0 stable was released, and I think it’s time for you to level up your experience. Here are some tips by yours truly 

The tips work for all Operating Systems

Backup. it’s important!

  1. Find the Menu on the top right corner

jaxx menu

2. Click “Tools”
3. Choose “Backup Wallet”
4. Display Master Mnemonic

Tip: use a Password Manager to secure the phrase and write it down on paper.


  1. back to Menu
  2. Click “Settings”
  3. “Setup Security Pin”
    in case someone gets physical access to your Wallet, they still need the pin to send your money.

Pair multiple devices

You can easily pair multiple devices either via your Mnemonic or by Scanning a QR Code.

  1. Menu
  2. Tools > Pair Devices

If you want to pair your Mobile choose “Display Paring Code” which allows you to scan the Pairing QR code with your mobile device
