Chose the option that makes sense to you there, and press Continue (I'm going to chose the Mnemonic Phrase option)
From here, enter in the mnemonic phrase that was sent to you. More than 12 words? you can enable the Extra Word option at the bottom of that screen. Once you have filled out all the words click on the continue button.
