Translations: How to create an account on the Ardor Platform/9/en
Your passphrase (indicated in red in the image below) is your secret password for accessing your account. More importantly though, this passphrase is equivalent to your social security number on the blockchain. You can use it to log in from any computer or device. This means anyone with access to your passphrase has the ability to control your funds. For this reason, it is essential to keep this information safe. It is recommended that you write down your passphrase and keep it in a safe place. It is NOT recommended to store your passphrase on your computer because if your computer security is compromised, then access to your Ardor funds would also be at risk.
