What is Recovery Seed

A seed phrase is a collection of random phrases that your crypto wallet generates when you first set it up. If you ever need to regain access to your assets, you can use this seed phrase as a backup.

Recovery keys should not be mistaken for private keys, which are alphanumeric strings that let users carry out cryptographic transactions from their wallets despite looking relatively alike. But since anyone with access can make a replica of either wallet or empty its contents, they both need to be protected as carefully.
