How do I access my shorter seed?
Seeds shorter than 60 characters are not allowed to be entered in the light wallet GUI unless a change to preferences is made:
“Tools” > “Options” > “Allow short seed”
It is HIGHLY recommended that all seeds be 81 characters to maximize security! After you access your "short" seed, create a new 81-character seed, generate a receive address, and send all iotas from your old "short" seed to your new 81-character seed.
For instructions on generating a new 81-character seed, see below:
