XUMM allows you to easily import your accounts from other wallets providing XRP Ledger access:
- Import an XRP Ledger account using the account secret (family seed / mnemonic / secret numbers)
- Porting Atomic Wallet XRP ledger accounts to XUMM
But what if you want to do the opposite? What if you want to use your XRP Ledger accounts created / managed with XUMM in another wallet client (providing they support XRP Ledger 'family seed' secrets)?
What if XRPL Labs (the creators of XUMM) would close shop? (Don't worry, we won't!)
What if XUMM would be removed from your phone and the App stores?
Good news: you'd be fine ;)
The secret numbers XUMM generated when you created an account are based on an open format and they are backwards compatible with the more common s... (family seed) secret often used by XRP Ledger clients.
We even published an open source tool to convert your secret numbers to a family seed.
Warning: ONLY use this tool on a FULLY TRUSTED computer, preferably without being connected to the internet while entering data & viewing output!
Using your secret numbers or s... (family seed) secret you can get access to your XRP Ledger account using any other XRP Ledger client you wish. Make sure you only use trusted clients! Security Advisory: an important note on XRPL accounts / XRPL clients
We believe in choice and the freedom to choose. We want you to use XUMM because you want to, not because you're locked in. You will be able to access the XRP Ledger and use your XRPL account, with or without XRPL Labs and XUMM.
