How to import an Account using a Private Key in K5 Wallet

K5 Wallet is a non-custodial wallet. So, every Account inside K5 Wallet is a public address on the blockchain and has a unique private key. The private key is what grants the ownership of the funds on a given address. K5 Wallet automatically generates and stores private keys encrypted on your device. When you send tokens, K5 Wallet signs the transaction with your private key (without disclosing it), which indicates to the entire blockchain network that you have the authority to transfer the funds from the address you are sending from.

Warning: Never share your private key with anyone, not even with a Klever Support agent.
