Before starting

Let’s get started

To send funds to friends or family via Proton Wallet, follow the steps below. For this example, we will be sending XPR. How to Receive guide will follow after. 

  1. From the Home Screen, click on the Proton-based token you would like to send.
  2. Click 'Send'
  3. Enter the Proton @name of the recipient.
  4. Enter the amount and click "Continue"
  5. Review the details and confirm all the fields are accurate. You can also enter a public memo for the transfer (ie "Happy Birthday Timmy!" or "Rent for April").
  6. Once you are ready to proceed, click the "Send" button and provide authorization to complete the transaction.
    ⚠️ All transactions are posted to the Blockchian and are final. We cannot reverse a transfer. Ensure to double check the amount and recipient before sending.
