Navigate to the Phantom wallet official download page.
Select your preferred browser or "Phantom for Mobile" which is currently only available on Apple IOS.
You will automatically be redirected to your browsers extension download. In this case we have selected the chrome extension and are prompted to "Add extension".
At this stage, you will want to click on "Create new wallet" and follow the easy guide to set up your first wallet.
You will first be asked to set up a password and agree to the terms of service. Make sure you do not forget this password as you will need it to unlock your wallet every time you want to use it.
Next you will need to record your secret recovery phrase. It is important that you keep this secure and do not share this or your password with anyone else. Many scams will attempt to ask you for this secret recovery phrase and it is vital you never share it. Otherwise, your wallet will be compromised.
You will find your newly created wallet if you navigate to the top right of your browser and select extensions. In chrome this looks like a jigsaw piece and when selected you can pin it to your browser bar so it's always available on webpages you select.
Congratulations! You have now successfully set up your phantom wallet.
!! WARNING !!
If you use your Phantom wallet outside of playing StarAtlas and discover Solana ecosystem dApps, be careful. If a website you connect to forces you to click the “Auto-approve transactions” box, it is 99% likely to be a scam. Do not fall for it.
