How to create a new Account via Manemonic/Seed Phrase
If you are setting up Keplr for the first time: In the initial pop-up window, choose [Create New Account]
If you have used Keplr before: In the extension click on the silhouette in the upper-right-hand corner, then the blue box [Add Account] & select [Create New Account]
- Choose to have a seed/mnemonic phrase of 24 words, then be sure to save them.
The safest way is to write the words on paper and store them in a secure place. Avoid taking screenshots of the words or copying them into your computer/phone notes.
Now enter a name for your account (you can change it later).
You can change the derivation path by clicking on [Advanced], but this is optional and not suggested for how we are going to use Keplr.

Once you are sure that you have correctly transcribed the seed/mnemonic phrase, click on [Next].
To confirm the creation of the new account, all you have to do is click on the words in the right order in which they appear in your seed/mnemonic phrase and press [Register].
