How to fix "Invalid Seed Phrase" error (Invalid Secret Recovery Phrase)

DO NOT share your Secret Recovery Phrase with anyone! These words can be used to steal from all your accounts. You can't edit or change your Secret Recovery Phrase.

  1. Check each word you have written down on the BIP-39 words list: https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0039/english.txt
    • Tip: Use the browser's search function (Cmd+F on Mac and Ctrl+F on Windows) to look for each word that you have written down, so you can check the spelling in your backup. If you can't find it, try the closest word.
  2. Make sure your Secret Recovery Phrase is written in the exact same order it was provided, with one space between each word, and in lower case.
