Account Recovery

You can use either one of the following recovery methods to recover or move your BrightID to a new phone.
Social Recovery is a great way to recover if you have three or more close family or friends who would not mind being your recovery connection. It can be quite effective:
  • It is not necessary for your recovery connections to have any verification.
  • It does not cost an extra phone (unlike device recovery).
Device Recovery is great if you do not have anybody suitable to be your recovery connection. You can use additional phone(s) as secondary backup(s) of your BrightID.
Learn more about each and set one or both up as early as possible to never lose your BrightID.
