Back Up Your Secret Phrase

Your Secret phrase is your account.

It is essential that you keep your Secret phrase in a safe place at all time, as losing it means losing access to your funds.
Although JSON files are a popular way to store your accounts when migrating from one wallet/extension to another, JSON files are not a time-proof way to store your accounts. If you forget the password associated to your JSON files and you don't have a Secret phrase for those accounts, you will no longer be able access those funds.
Therefore, you must keep your Secret phrase in store at all time alongside any JSON file that you have. This is because you can always obtain a JSON file from a Secret phrase, but the opposite is impossible.
