Hi All,

I just tried to use electrum today and installed the PC version.
Then I went to install the android version, and restore the wallet with the same seed as the PC version, but the address generated was different from the address on the PC version?
Is it supposed to be this way for security reasons or am I doing it wrong somehow?

Thanks.

I think you mistyped the seed on the android version. Try again until you get the same addresses. Don't send any coins there until you do. I don't want to scare you or anything, I remember reading something about a bug on the Android version, where a mistyped seed gives you a default set of addresses same as everyone else.

The android wallet is buggy and hasn't been updated in a long time. The QR code scanning feature doesn't work so you will have to manually enter the seed.

IMO this wallet should be removed from the electrum site or people will face monetary losses because of it.
