Using Watch Mode

With Rainbow’s Watch Mode, you can easily follow anyone’s wallet activity or see what’s inside their wallet. If you have a hardware wallet, you can even use Rainbow to visualize your NFTs and keep track of its balances. All you have to do is import the wallet’s public address or an ENS domain.

Adding a wallet via watch mode:

What if I added my own wallet as watch mode?

If your wallet was imported using its public wallet address, your wallet will be imported as the read-only “watching mode”.

In order to actually control the wallet, you’ll have to verify that you own the wallet by importing its secret phrase or private key. If you go to your profile/transaction screen in the app, you can tap on your wallet name/address to bring up a menu that will let you "import".
