Where are the public and private keys located in Daedalus?

Under which tab are the public and private keys? Thanks.

The public key is shown in the Receive tab. I don’t know whether the private key is accessible but I’m guessing not.

If I am correct, the recovery phrase (12 words) generates the private key.

That makes sense. :slight_smile:

It defaults to this location

C:\Users\ “YourUserName” \AppData\Roaming\Daedalus\Secrets-1.0

Not very safe Maybe? Or am i wrong…? If the computer it s hacked it s game over…
Hum… Or I am missing something? Maybe the best way its to delete and generate the wallet everytime?

The file is encrypted so the hacker can’t do so much with it


I have my 12 word phrase, but how do i get my private key? Still no answer…

Your private key is (encoded in) your 12 word phrase. That’s it.

Additionally you can retrieve your keys from your phrase with the cli:
