Hello guys,
Today,I wanted to get access to my Samourai Bitcoin Wallet but I forgot about the pin code,so I decided to use the backup by reinstalling the app (The app automatically detects if a backup is available in my device or not) so I was asked to give my passphrase which I have written down when I first created the wallet;it doesn't work.So I turned myself to my mnemonic phrase that I have also written down,it do backup a wallet with 0 funds....
Help is highly appreciated!

Was the mnemonic phrase you tried to enter, given to you by the same wallet (samourai) ?

Usually the mnemonic phrase (if written down correctly) should recover all of your keys.

If you are sure you have written it down correctly, you might try to import it into another wallet.

The derivation path when importing the seed into a different wallet (e.g. electrum) depends on the address-type you have used.
  • Legacy (P2PKH, starting with 1..): m/44'/0'/0'
  • Nested segwit (P2SH, starting with 3..): m/49'/0'/0'
  • Native segwit (bech32, starting with bc1..): m/84'/0'/0'


You should be able to see your funds once you import your seed (and choose the correct derivation path) inside electrum.
But i don't have an explanation for your funds not appearing on your mobile (except for a wrong/different mnemonic phrase).

You did something wrong in process of restoring wallet with mnemonic secret words, some word has been incorrectly entered or your wallet passphrase is incorrect. In such a case Samourai advises that the procedure is repeated, of course with maximum precision when entering secret words/passphrase. It is very easy to type wrong letter if you use smartphone keyboard.

In case you made something wrong regarding recovery, there is step by step text&video tutorial : Restore your Samourai Wallet with your secret words

I'm not able to use my seeds in Electrum because it's 12 words seed,not 24 word and yes,it was given me by the same wallet (Samourai)

I always write down my seeds and passphrases,I've tried more than 10 times,didn't work.I'm pretty sure that they are correct as I always triple check when creating a wallet.

You can verify your seed phrase by checking words here https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0039/english.txt
Or if it's not a English phrase you can choose the other language from here https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0039.mediawiki

Make sure that you click only the suggested words and no space.

I have checked.All words match.I also contacted their support,24 hours,no answer.Worst wallet ever,pretty sure it's a technical issue.
Lesson learnt the hard way but np.

1. Go to Electrum;
2. In the create wallet wizard, select: Standard Wallet -> I already have a seed.
3. Click on "Options" and checkmark both options ("Extend this seed with custom words" and "BIP39 Seed")
4. Write your Samourai wallet seed -> Next;
5. Write the password you put on Samourai when creating your wallet -> Next;
6. Select the second option: "p2sh-segwit (p2wpkh-p2sh)" and make sure the textbox is showing "m/49'/0'/0'" -> Next.

It should be the same wallet that you created on Samourai.

Worked.Thank you very much sir,this forum needs more people like you.It was definitely a technical issue on the behalf of Samourai Wallet.Lesson learned,never going to use a beta/non-popular wallet again.
Best regards,locking this thread now,thanks again to everyone.
