After you created your profile, you need to activate it. A profile activation is a one-time-only procedure.  If you have a positive profile balance Surf will automatically activate the profile for you.

If your balance is zero, you can activate the profile for free with the help of Activation Debot. It sends 0.07 Ever to your profile and Surf will use them for the profile activation.

  1. On the home screen, tap Activate to launch the Surf Activation Debot. At launch, the Debot will check whether your profile has been activated, and report upon this.
  1. Read the terms of use in the Debot dialog and confirm launching.

  2. Click Get welcome Evers.

  3. Click Confirm to receive Evers for activation.

  4. Confirm your action with a PIN code, by scanning your fingerprint or using facial recognition.

  5. Your profile has been activated. After that, the Debot will offer you to back up your seed phrase.

The Debot takes Evers from the reward that Surf receives for staking its funds. This is possible because Surf transferred its Evers to staking. The amount required for activation of a new profile is taken by the Activation Debot from this reward.
