How do I reset my recovery phrase?

As long as you can still log in to your account, you’ll be able to reset your recovery phrase, for added security if there is a case that it has been compromised or has become outdated.

 

 

  1. First, log in to your account on identity.ic0.app.
  2. Click the “X” next to the current recovery phrase to clear it.
  3. Use the Recovery Mechanism function to generate a new recovery phrase. To do so, select “Add Recovery Key.”
  4. You can use your own storage with a recovery phrase or use an extra security key.
  5. Make sure to copy down the new recovery phrase and keep it secret. Knowledge of this phrase will enable access to your Identity Anchor.
  6. Continue and you're done.

After reseting your recovery phrase, be sure to protect it so that it cannot be removed or changed unless you authenticate with it.
