Archive, transfer and spent no option for private key... Please help

  • welcome to bitcoin.SE! Can you tell us a bit more about your case, why do you want the private keys, and why do you want to export from Mycelium? Are these private keys belonging to addresses, that you might have from an exchange? Mar 15, 2018 at 10:01

I have bitcoins that are stored on watch only address

What are watch-only addresses?

A watch-only address is a public bitcoin addresses you’ve imported into your wallet. This is a cool, useful feature if you want to monitor activity at a particular bitcoin address. You can import any existing bitcoin address.

There is no way to get access to those bitcoins because it's a watch only address. You can only watch it, but you can't do anything else (sending BTC away, exporting the private key, signing something...)
