Important information about private keys

You have full control of your private keys with Exodus wallet!

While Exodus will manage your private keys for you behind the scenes, some advanced users might want to see them in order to authorize some movements manually. This guide will explain how to find your private keys within your Exodus wallet.

We designed Exodus to make it easy to hold and manage blockchain assets. Since most of our customers are new to the technology, we purposely hid the private keys in order to protect beginners from getting phished. Although Exodus does not recommend manual management of private keys, many advanced users might want to view and test private keys.

While viewing your private keys, please make sure no one is around you. Private keys are for your eyes only!

If anyone is able to view your system with remote-sharing apps like Skype, Zoom, TeamViewer, etc. please disconnect them first! The Exodus team will never ask you to open and see your private keys.

Each asset inside Exodus has a set of private keys. Some assets like ETH will have a single private key, while UTXO-based assets like BTC, LTC, BCH, BSV, etc. will have multiple private keys, one for every address.
