How to Change Your Password on MEWconnect

You may want to consider upgrading to the MEW wallet app instead of changing your password, as the MEWconnect app has been discontinued.


To change your password on MEWconnect, all you need is your phone and your 24-word recovery phrase.

If you still remember your password and do not have your 24-word recovery phrase, please scroll up to Section 2 of this article. Resetting your wallet without knowing your recovery phrase will result in the permanent loss of your wallet.

If you do not remember your password and do not have your 24-word recovery phrase, there is nothing we can do. Retrace your steps and try to remember your password, or your wallet will be lost forever.

Change Your Password

Step 1. Reset your wallet, either on the login screen or under our ‘Info’ section.

  • Choose ‘Forgot password?’ on the home screen, or ‘Reset wallet >’ in the Info tab.
