Monero CLI will then ask you to give your wallet a password and confirm it. Since your wallet will hold your private keys and seed, it is really important to enter a strong password.
Most Monero wallets ask the user to write down a mnemonic seed on a paper backup when a wallet is being created. So it's up to you to remember where and how you stored your mnemonic seed.
My restored wallet is showing a wrong balance
- [My restored wallet is showing a wrong balance](#my-restored-wallet-is-showing-a-wrong-balance)
Next, enter your 25 word mnemonic seed.
Next, Monero CLI will ask for a `Restore height`. Even though it is optional, it's not recommended to leave it blank, since setting a restore height makes your wallet synchronization faster. Ideally it should be the number of the block which included the first incoming transaction to your wallet. Alternatively, you can also enter the date or an estimated date (YYYY-MM-DD format) of the first incoming transaction.
Next, you will be asked for a wallet file name. Enter the name of the wallet you want to create and press `Enter`.
On the main menu, click on `Restore wallet from keys or mnemonic seed`. Trykk på `Gjenopprett lommeboken fra nøkler eller mnemoniske frø`:
On the next field, type your 25 word `mnemonic seed`. It is expected that some mnemonic seeds have repeated words, as they work as a verification for errors (checksum).
On the next page, give your wallet a strong password and confirm it. Since your wallet will hold your private keys and seed, it is really important to enter a strong password. På neste side kan du gi lommeboken din et sterkt passord og bekrefte det før du trykker på `Høyre`-piltasten:
On `Wallet location`, choose where you want the wallet file to be saved.
On `Wallet name`, enter the name of the wallet you want to create. You don't need to use the same name of the wallet being restored.
Open the terminal on your Monero CLI directory and run the following command:
