Setting up your BitBox02

Step 1: Install the desktop app

Go to the Digital Bitbox website and download the app for Windows, macOS or Linux.

Open the file by clicking on it and go through the installation process. When this is completed, the app will open automatically. You can also open it at any time by clicking on the desktop icon.

Step 2: Connect the hardware

Place the micro SD card in the BitBox and connect it to your computer. Press once on the screen of your BitBox to connect your device. Pressing works on both the bottom and top of the device.

Step 3: Create a wallet

Press 'Create Wallet' to create a new wallet. Give your device a name and click on 'Name Device & Continue'.

Step 4: Create a password

Now create a password and enter it into your BitBox. You can press the top of the device to change between lower case, uppercase and digits. You can use the bottom to scroll through the letters or numbers. Once you've selected the correct letter, press both sides at the same time to enter it.

Once you have entered the whole password you will need to repeat it one more time for verification.

Step 5: Make a backup

Press 'Create Backup' to create a backup. The BitBox then asks you to verify the date and time. Press tick to continue, the device has now automatically created a backup on your SD card.

Always make sure you store it safely. Your password and the SD card are the key to your coins.
