How to set a custom recovery address

Since some steps could fail during the swap process and, once they are swapped but not received, the tokens which are guarded by the smart contract can be recovered by a recovery address, you can set it through the user interface.

IMPORTANT: The recovery address can be set for the next swap. It cannot be modified once the swap started.

By default, it is set to the osmosis address associated to the connected wallet.

IMPORTANT: If the recovery address is associated to a wallet you do not own, you will not be able to recover funds if the swap process fails.

1. Access the settings

To set a custom recovery address you need to access the settings of the dApp. To do this, you must click on the settings icon in the top right corner of the interface.

2. Enter the custom recovery address

At this point, you can set any valid osmosis address as the recovery address. Despite this, however, it is important that you remember the fact that if you do not own the wallet associated with the address you are setting up, you will not be able to access the funds if an error occur in the swap process.
