I'm using Bitcoin Wallet for Android. I recently backed up my wallet's keys and did a fresh install to a new device and restored my wallet there. All great so far..

I'd now like to remove the fresh empty wallet that the app created for me when I did the install, but can't find a way to remove it from the application's address book. Anyone know how I might do this?

Okay, so I think I misunderstood what this app is showing me. A bitcoin wallet can (and often does) have multiple addresses (public+private keypairs). What I was seeing in the app was not multiple wallets, but just multiple addresses.


Using the Web interface, you can archive addresses and then in the Archive view you can delete addresses.
