How can I get the mnemonics from a specific account in Metamask?
I found the
reveal seed words in the settings-dialog, but this seems to be something global.
Instead of this I want to export the 12 words mnemonics from a specific account, to make it available on other machines also. There is the option "export private key", which just give me the private key consisting of several hexa decimal characters. I would expect different options here like the private key and mnemonics also.
- how can I get the mnemonics from a specific account?
- what is the
reveal seed wordsin global settings dialog for? which account is affected with that?
I have found out, that the seed words from settings-dialog stands for the very first account.
I installed MetaMask on another machine, recovered the account with these seeds and imported the very first account of my meta mask accounts from the origin machine.
However, while I can export private key for all other accounts and import them into my second machine this way, I'm curious why metaMask doesn't offer to generate seed words for a specific account instead of only the first account?
