How To Get Trust Wallet Private Key?

Comprehensive Tutorial on Retrieving Trust Wallet Private Key Safely and Ensuring Asset Security

By reading the article “How To Get Trust Wallet Private Key” published in Adaas Investment Magazine, you will get acquainted with private key in software wallets and how to extract your private key from the trust wallet application in general.

Some Trust Wallet users may need to view and copy their Trust Wallet’s private key for a variety of reasons. In the following, we have prepared a tutorial for obtaining a private key from the recovery phrase, because the trust wallet does not show you the private key directly.

How to find the recovery phrases in the Trust Wallet?

To view the recovery phrase in Trust Wallet, first select the Setting option and select the Wallets option to display your wallets.

Then select the blue info mark next to the wallet to display the Show Recovery Phrase option. Finally, we click on it to enter and by clicking on I understand the risks, we see the recovery phrase and copy it.

Convert the recovery phrase to the private key

As you have read, Trust Wallet does not directly provide users with a private key. For this reason, to convert the wallet recovery phrase to the private key, we must use a website or offline software.

Due to the importance of the private key, Adaas Investment Magazine recommends that you use the offline version of this software. To get started, please download the .html version specified in the photo via the link below from the Github.

To do this, after entering the link, download the bip39-standalone.html file from the Assets section. After downloading, please disconnect the device from the iancoleman offline

After opening the downloaded file, first, select the number of recovery phrase words, then in the BIP39 Mnemonic section, enter the words spaced and carefully.

After entering the words of the recovery phrase, you must select your coin type. For example, if you want to retrieve the Shiba Inu token, you must select the Ethereum coin.

After entering the information, you can access the addresses and private keys associated with each address that is intended for the recovery of your wallet from the Derived Addresses section.

How to decode the Path section

As you can see in the Derived Addresses section, a table with 4 columns is displayed. The first column is called Path, which you can decode as follows. The structure of each Path is as follows:

m / purpose’ / coin_type’ / account’ / change / address_index

First note that the letter “m” is fixed for all Paths.

In the purpose section, the Path standard number is shown, which is different based on the standard of each wallet.

The coin_type field specifies the number for each coin. For example for Ethereum, 60 is displayed.

In the Account section, the account number of a wallet is displayed. Some wallets allow you to open multiple accounts for one coin, and the first account is marked 0.

In the Change section, there are two numbers, 0 and 1, where the number 0 indicates the external transactions that enter from outside, and the number 1 is considered for internal transactions.

In the Address Index section, the address number created by the wallet starts from 0 and one number is added to it for each new address.

What is the private key?

For each public address through which the cryptocurrency is received, a private key is created that indicates ownership of that public address. This is why it is so important to keep the private key and recovery phrase private.

What is the recovery phrase in blockchain wallets?

The recovery Phrase is a set of 12 to 24 words that are displayed to the user by the application when creating a wallet on a blockchain.

As the name implies, this phrase allows users to recover their blockchain accounts. For example, if the mobile phone in which the wallet is installed is stolen, the user can easily recover his wallet. Of course, following security tips such as a strong password for mobile phones is essential to keep their wallets safe.
