Find your way around.
Talisman is a non-custodial wallet. We do not hold your funds and we do not have the means to access them. Your funds are only as safe as your device and your private key. Do not share your secret phrase with anyone and always back it up.
A: Talisman makes it easy to import your Polkadot.js accounts. All you need is your Polkadot.js password and exported .json file. Follow the steps below:
1. Open the Talisman extension menu and click "Add Account"
2. This will open up a browser tab. Click on the "Import from Polkadot.js" button
3. Upload your .json file and enter your Polkadot.js password. IMPORTANT: From this step onwards, your Polkadot.js password will no longer work - Your Talisman password is now the password you must use when accessing your funds.
A: It is likely that your assets were held in a derived account on Polkadot.js, so you need to make sure that you import the correct account.
Derived accounts created on Polkadot.js will not show up in Talisman extension unless you:
- Onboard Talisman with your original secret phrase as a root account and re-derive these accounts (one-by-one) by clicking "Add Account", then "New account". Note: The original password will not be required.
- Import these derived accounts (individually) by JSON backup file. Note: The original password will be required.
