How to create your Metal Vault account


This quick guide will help you with setting up your Metal Vault account inside the Metal Vault application.

Step 1: Sign Up At The Official Metal Vault Website


First, click here to signup for Metal Vault. Fill in your email address and choose a password. Make sure your password meets the following requirements:

* Should be at least 10 characters in length.

* Should contain uppercase characters.

* Should contain lowercase characters.

* Should contain digits

* Should contain symbols.

Example of a password that meets the requirements:  *Metalrocks24hoursaday

Then, once you’ve looked over the terms of service, tick the “I accept the terms of service” checkbox, click on the captcha, and finally, press the “Create Account” button.

Step 2: Backup Your Metal Keycard - This Is Very Important!


The next step is to download your keycard. Read the disclaimer in the red box and tick its checkbox to confirm you understand that you may lose your funds if you lose the keycard.

Then press the “Continue” button. A pop-up window will appear that will ask if you want to save the PDF file (depending on your settings the file might open in its own window).

You should save the PDF file securely, preferably to an offline storage device. You might also want to print a copy or two, and keep these in safe places; a copy in a backup location could be very valuable in case of fire!

The keycard will allow you to recover your account and funds if you ever lose or forget your personal password. So be careful you don’t lose it, and that you control who has access to it. If another party has your keycard, they can take your funds.

The keycard can also be downloaded again later from the Wallet interface.

Welcome To The Metal Vault Dashboard


Simply log in with your email and password to access the Metal Vault dashboard to get started.
