Before you begin, here’s one thing we have noticed about helping others in setting up a Blockchain Wallet on their computers and mobile devices, and we would advise the same:

The pairing between the two devices or platforms is easier when the Blockchain Wallet is first set up on a web browser, and then only installed and paired from your mobile device.

However, if you plan to work only from your smartphone, you may omit setting up the Blockchain Wallet on your browser. You can still set up the browser version later, though with a little bit more difficulty.

N.B: The pairing can be done from within the smartphone app by going to Settings > Log in to Web Wallet > Show QR Code and follow the instructions given on that screen. You will need to log in from a computer or wallet that has a webcam to scan the QR code shown on your smartphone screen.
