Set Up Wallet Recovery Wizard
The Wallet Recovery Wizard is a software that you can use to recover assets from your self-managed wallets, without BitGo. The software enables you to send your assets, including sweeping transactions, to a new address, without requiring BitGo to sign the transaction using the BitGo key.
You can use the Wallet Recovery Wizard in conjunction with, or without, a key recovery service. To use the software, you must have access to the following:
- Backup public key
- BitGo public key, base address, root address, or wallet-contract address (depending on the asset)
- User public key
- Wallet passphrase
You can use the Wallet Recovery Wizard in both the test and live environments.
Note: For use in the live environment, BitGo strongly recommends that you use the Wallet Recovery Wizard on an air gapped machine.
