Account Recovery

Lost your phone? Forgot your password? We have you covered.
Traditional recovery methods can be a huge flaw in any account system. Seed phrases are also dated, stressful to maintain and unnecessary. Gridlock uses guardians to recover accounts without a central intermediary or a seed phrase. As your guardian, a trusted friend can invite you back to your network. This new, decentralized form of recovery is called Social Verification.
Guardians help you get your account back when you have lost or changed your device. You can get back into your wallet by communicating with your guardians to reach the threshold and recover your keyshare, designating it back to your new device.
There are currently 3 use cases for Social Verification: Key Regeneration, Guardian Replacement and Password Reset.
​Distributed Monitoring is a feature coming soon.
