How to use FLASH Web Wallet

Flash Web Wallet

Why use a web wallet? Because you want all the great Flash features without having to use the desktop core wallet and download the entire blockchain (which can take a long time and use up your computer memory).

To begin, visit the web wallet page: https://www.flashcoin.io/#web-wallet

1 Click on the ‘Flash Web Wallet‘ or ‘Get a web wallet here’ buttons.
2 On the registration page, enter your name and email address, and select Create Wallet.
3 Verify your email by going to your email inbox and continue to login to the Flash Web Wallet. Your main login page will look like this once successful.
4 You should consider enabling 2FA (two-factor authentication); this helps to further secure your wallet and is done through the Google Authenticator app. It is not mandatory to activate 2FA to use the wallet but it is highly advised. To activate, go to your My Account tab and then click on Account Settings. Scan your QR code with your phone using the app (explained in the step below).

Write down or store your recovery key somewhere safe in case you ever lose your phone.

Pay attention that there is no way to recover the wallet without the recovery key or the 2FA
5 Follow the illustrated steps for the Google Authenticator app to add the Flash Web Wallet 2FA.
