Guardian Replacement

Maintaining a network of five guardians is crucial for your security. But what if a guardian loses their phone or switches to a new one? No worries, Gridlock has you covered.

On your guardians' screen, you can monitor the status of each guardian. If a guardian is inactive for an extended period, get in touch with them to find out what's going on and potentially replace them with a new guardian. To do that, tap on the guardian in question to view their status and press the 'Replace' button. The process of replacing a guardian resembles the Device Migration process.

Upon initiating a guardian replacement, Gridlock will send an email to you and notify your other guardians to confirm the replacement. This means you can the same Social Verification protection that you get with the Device Migration process.
