Changing wallet/account secret

Recommended Posts

Let's say you have a wallet and believe the secret might be compromised

However at this stage no XRP has been stolen

With BTC etc you can create a new account and move it all to that, and ditch the compromised account. But with the minimum 20 requirement, in this instance, you couldn't do that with all your XRP. You'd have to incur a new 20 loss on the new wallet too.

What would one do in such circumstances? Can you change your secret offline?

Not happened just hypothetical

You just need to set a regular key, first one is free (you don't have to pay tx fee)

looks like rippex just had a post on how to do this with their wallet.

if you think your secret is exposed you will probably want to disable the master after you set the regular key.
