Accessing legacy `t` addresses on Mainnet Glif Sender (Wallet)

This guide will show you how to access a legacy t addresses from the account selection interface on the Glif Sender. The process is exactly the same from any Glif App that allows users to access accounts from a connected wallet.

We strongly encourage you to move funds and multisig signers to the normal, supported addresses as soon as possible.

Today, the account selection view allows you to create a new Filecoin address, using the legacy format.

To recover any of your accounts from the account selection interface...

  • Toggle "Expert mode" on in the left corner under the table of your accounts.
  • Select "Legacy" from the dropdown menu.
  • Type in the “account index” that corresponds to the account you wish to recover. For example, if you used to select the 0th t address account from the account selection, you should type in 0 to the account index field.
  • Click "Add account".
Add a legacy account
