Allow skipping Parity UI account creation. #6367

I'm running:

  • Parity version: 1.7.0
  • Operating system: Windows
  • And installed: via installer

When installing Parity on a new machine, upon launch of the UI you are prompted to create an account. There does not appear to be a way to skip account creation, even if you only plan on using Parity for monitoring on-chain contracts, or you plan on importing keys via import, or if you plan on using a hardware signing device.

While I recognize that I can just create a dummy account and then immediately delete it, it would be nice if there were a skip option for this step, even if it was in very small letters at the bottom of the screen and strongly discouraged.

The Parity wallet is not intended to work without accounts and might fail at certain points if there was no account. But I agree, instead of an account creation, there should be an import option.

Closing this UI-bug/-annoyance issue as stale and tracking it in the meta issue here for future reference. There will be new user interface in one of the upcoming releases and the current wallet will only receive critical fixes for now.

Is the new user interface out now? When I am using it seems that I still need to create a new account instead of importing exists accounts.
