Starting with the version 1.3.14 of the Jaxx Wallet we are adding a new feature called the Address Book. It is designed to help our users keep track and easily access their most frequently utilized addresses in Jaxx.
Please rest assured your Address Book is only stored on your device. This provides the ultimate level of privacy and security but it also means that if you change the wallet Backup Phrase or remove the application from your device, the Address Book data will be removed as well and there is no way to restore it since it's not saved anywhere else.
Resetting the Jaxx Cache (from the in-app menu: Settings > Reset Jaxx Cache) does not remove the contents of the Address Book. Only removing the application or changing the wallet Backup Phrase will clear the Address Book as well.
Where can I find the Address Book?
Your Jaxx Address Book is located in the Jaxx app menu under Tools > Temporary Address Book:
How do I add addresses to my Address Book?
Once in the Address Book screen, click/tap the “ADD ADDRESS” button located at the bottom right corner of your Jaxx Wallet and open the ADDRESS BOOK INPUT screen.
- Give your address entry a name, it can be anything you need to remember it easy
- Paste/Type the address you want to save to your Address Book. You can enter any address, there is no validation except that it needs to be at least 10 characters long.
- Then tap/click the SAVE button in there lower right corner of the screen
Be sure that you are entering the correct address!!
How to I use an address from my Address Book?
Go to the Address Book in your Jaxx Wallet Menu (Tools > Temporary Address Book)
Use the copy button () to the right of the address you want to use (make sure to double check if you are copying the right address).
You will see a confirmation popup that the address was copied:
With the address copied to your device's clipboard, go back to your wallet by closing the Tools Menu from the at the top right.
On your desired Jaxx Wallet, open the Send transaction menu by clicking/tapping on the tab. Now paste the address you copied from the address book earlier, fill in the amount you want to send and click/tap the Send button to get the transaction confirmation screen.
On the Transaction Confirmation screen, make sure you have the right address and all other details are correct then CONFIRM the transaction.
How can I modify the Address Book entries?
You can also edit an address you saved before, or change its name, or even remove it from your Address Book. Keep in mind that once deleted, there is no way to recover it.
We hope this answers all your questions regarding this new feature but if you don't find your answer here, please contact us and our User Success team will help.
