Custom node

You can manually specify a node in settings. This custom node will be used for all wallets of that type (eg: all Monero wallets).

On the home screen, click on the hamburger menu in the upper right, then click Nodes. You can instead click on the top sync status bar on the home screen.

Add new custom node

You can add a custom node in app settings, or in advanced privacy settings during wallet creation.

Add new custom node in settings

To add a new custom node, click on Add new node +. Type in a Node Address, Node port (usually 18081 or 18089), a login (optional; only if needed), and a password (optional; only if needed). Tick Use SSL only if instructed or if you know SSL is used.

Here is an example using Seth for Privacy’s Monero node:

  • Node Address:
  • Node port: 18089
  • Login: (blank)
  • Password: (blank)
  • Use SSL: (unticked)
  • Trusted: (unticked)

ONLY tick “Trusted” if you are running your own node and trust that it is secure! This will make the connection more efficient.

Add new custom node in advanced privacy settings

When creating a wallet, first select the wallet asset type you want. Then, in the same screen where you are prompted for a wallet name, click Advanced Privacy Settings. Add your custom node there. Save the settings, choose a wallet name, and proceed with setup as normal.

Node lists

We run a service uptime tracker and list of Monero nodes at We also have an official onion node.

We strongly recommend running your own node!

Remove a node

You can remove any node except the current node. For a stored node that isn’t in current use, swipe right to left on that node to display a Delete icon; click Delete. You will be asked to confirm to remove the node; click Remove.
