Step 7a (New wallet): If you are starting a new wallet, select the option on the right, Create a Wallet. This will guide you through creating your new wallet and have you set up a password for the extension to gain easy access to your wallet from your browser each time you open your browser.
After that, you will get an explanation of what your recovery phrase is, and we recommend you back up and store this phrase someplace secure and follow security guidelines. Always keep this information private; if compromised, you could lose anything held within your newly created wallet.
You are now logged into a brand-new wallet.
