1. Open the Divi Desktop Wallet Debug Console
You will see the console in the top right hand corner of the wallet client interface.
2. Create a password
Where "mycoolpw" is a secure password that you will remember.
Note: Quotation marks are required
You may have to wait a few moments for the following screen to appear.
Reopen the Desktop Wallet
Pro tip: Save your password somewhere safe like 1Password or LastPass.
3. Validate your password
Open the debug console once again and type
walletpassphrase "mycoolpw" 120
"mycoolpw" is the password you created in step 2, and
120 is the length of time you wish your wallet to be unlocked for in seconds (ie. 2 minutes in this example).
You should see a blue lock at the bottom left hand corner of your screen.
Pro tip: Calling
walletpassphrase "mycoolpw" 0 will unlock the wallet indefinitely or until you lock it yourself.
