Introduction to Remote Commands

Samourai Wallet can accept remote commands via SMS . This feature is disabled by default but it can easily be enabled from the Settings screen.  

Remote Commands

There are currently two commands that Samourai Wallet will respond to:

  1. Remote Wipe
    The wallet will be securely erased from the device. This is useful if you lose your device and are worried about someone accessing your Bitcoin wallet.

  2. Remote Backup 
    When this command is used you will receive an SMS with the backup seed of the wallet installed on the device. You can use this seed to restore your wallet with your secret words

Trusted Number

You can optionally enable a trusted phone number for initiating remote commands. When trusted number is enabled, remote commands will only be accepted from that specific phone number.
