Importing Keys into Torus Wallet

Users who wish to import their external private keys to utilize on the Torus Wallet can do so.

If you are looking to import an account using Private keys, you will be presented with the option to enter the Private key by selcting the import type as Private Key

Do take note that imported accounts are not permanent, due to the way Torus manages private keys, and not bound to the account that you logged in with.

Once you log out of your wallet account, the private key information would be lost, and you'll need to import your private key in again.
