When running forc deploy --testnet, the tool helped me create a mnemonic, but I did not save it properly. How should I restore it? I noticed that it might be possible to use code to decrypt the .wallet.json file, but I was wondering if there is a command line tool that can do this?


Hey @wrule

Can try using the forc wallet import <your seed phrase> command

( to see more options you can type forc wallet )

let us know how it goes


Hi mate,

I don’t have the solution for retrieving the seed phrase but you can import the private key by running forc wallet account 0 private-key where 0 is your wallet index.
With the Pk you will be able to restore your account in any wallet that support fuel.

may I ask where it’s mentioned that the wallet.json can be decrypted to reveal the seed phrase ?

Another option , If you still remember the password, you can try to get the private key this way:

forc wallet account 0 private-key
