Fearless offers its wallet in two different versions: Fearless Wallet, which is a browser extension available for Chome-based browsers, and the Fearless app for your phone (available on both Android and iOS). The browser version serves as an ideal companion for accessing dApps within the Polkadot ecosystem, while the mobile app empowers users to leverage Polkadot functionalities such as staking and participation in crowdloans, all from their phone device. 


This article serves as a guide to the basic functionalities of both products, highlighting what they offer to Polkadot users.

Fearless Wallet is a non-custodial wallet, which means that only you have access to your accounts. For this reason, it is imperative that you keep your mnemonic phrase safe. Without it, it is impossible to restore your account if you ever lose access to it.
