How to Add Derived Addresses in imKey ?

To add accounts via address derivation in your imKey hardware wallet, you have two options: using the default setup or proceeding with custom configuration. Before embarking on this process, ensure that your mobile phone's Bluetooth is successfully connected to the imKey hardware wallet to facilitate a smooth operation.

Default Addition:

1. Tap on "My Profile" - " Manage wallets" - select the paired imKey, and click on "Add "
 
 
2. Select the account you wish to add by tapping on "+" - "Confirm". After completion, on the Asset homepage, tap on the account name on the top left corner to view and manage the added accounts in your wallet. (Here we take adding an ETH address as an example.)
 

Custom Addition:

1. Tap on "My Profile" - " Manage wallets" - select the paired imKey, and click on "Add ".
 
  
2. For the desired account, tap on the three dots on the top right corner, choose "Advanced " - "Customize" - "BIP44".
 
 
3. After selecting BIP44, you can input the last three parameters of the derivation path to generate an account with a custom path. Tap on "Confirm". Once done, on the Asset homepage, tap on the account name at the top left corner to view and manage the added accounts in your wallet. (Again, using adding an ETH address as an example.)
 

 

Please note that when opting for the custom mode, it is essential to securely back up the custom account derivation pathes. In the event you delete the wallet and attempt to restore it later, the derivation pathes must be entered to facilitate a successful recovery. As imToken does not store any records of user-customized paths, losing this information will result in irreversible loss.
