Get your Digital Wallet

You take the security of your data seriously. So do we.

With ArDrive, you fully control your own files and what others can see. Our team does not have access to any of your files. This high level of data confidentiality is maintained through the use of digital wallets

To get started with the ArDrive mobile app, you'll need a digital wallet with Arweave, the network used to provide permanent data storage. Your digital wallet provides secure access to your ArDrive account and also hold AR, the digital currency used to pay for permanent data storage.

If you have an Arweave wallet loaded with some AR, you'll simply need to get your wallet securely transferred to your phone. Try one of the following: 

  • Apple:  Airdrop your digital wallet (a JSON file) from your Mac to your iPhone.  
  • Android:  use Nearby Share to send the wallet (a JSON file) from your computer to your Android device
  • Cable transfer:  transfer the file securely by using a data cable from your desktop directly to your mobile device

We recommend that you delete the JSON file after you first sign in to the ArDrive mobile app. The app will store your wallet in an encrypted area on your phone so nobody else can access it.

For security purposes, we do not recommend emailing your JSON file to yourself on your phone as this will put your wallet on your email provider's servers.

Note:  If you have already used ArDrive to store a significant amount of permanent data (more than 5 GB) on your wallet, it may not sync with the mobile app. 

If you are new to permanent data, you'll need an Arweave wallet to get started with the app. We currently recommend creating a new Arweave wallet on your desktop or laptop.


Option 1:  Create a Wallet on Arweave
Create a new digital wallet with Arweave with these steps:

  1. Visit faucet.arweave.net
  2. Check the box at the bottom and click "Continue"
  3. On the next page, check the box and download your wallet (a JSON key file)

Using ArDrive requires the digital currency AR. If you wish to get a small amount of AR added to your new wallet for free, complete the registration on faucet.arweave.net by sharing a tweet to verify your identity. A small amount of AR will soon be added to your wallet.


Option 2:  Create a Wallet on ArConnect

Arconnect is a wallet browser extension for Arweave (similar to Metamask for Ethereum).

Visit arconnect.io and install their Chrome browser extension. Once the extension is installed, you can create a new Arweave wallet (with a seedphrase) and download it to your computer. ArConnect will not provide a small amount of AR, so you'll need to fund your wallet through the steps below.


Next you'll need to transfer your new wallet to your phone.

The following options can be used to get your new digital wallet to your mobile device: 

  • Apple:  Airdrop your digital wallet (a JSON file) from your Mac to your iPhone
  • Android:  use Nearby Share to send the wallet (a JSON file) from your computer to your Android device
  • Cable transfer:  transfer the file securely by using a data cable from your desktop directly to your mobile device

We recommend that you delete the file after you first sign in to the ArDrive mobile app.  The app will store your wallet in an encrypted area on your phone so nobody else can access it.

For security purposes, we do not recommend emailing your JSON file to yourself on your phone as this will put your wallet on your email provider's servers.

Fund your Wallet

Using ArDrive Mobile requires the digital currency AR to pay for permanent data storage.

If you just created a new wallet through Arweave, they will give you enough AR to upload a few files up for free.

If you wish to add more data, you can top up your AR with a credit card through SimpleSwap.
