What are some best practices for protecting your Internet Identity?

Your Internet Identity is very sensitive information, and it's recommended to keep high levels of security around your NNS dapp account. The best way to prevent accidental loss of your identity is to use a dedicated physical security key as a registered device and keep it in a safe place. We always recommend you add multiple devices to your Internet Identity and use at least one security key. In case you lose a device, you should register as many devices as possible to prevent you from losing access to your dapps.


The minimum backup setup we recommend for now is:

  • Security Key
  • Phone with Biometrics (Don’t clear cache if Mac or iOS)
  • Recovery Phrase
