All About Guardians
Guardians sound like a tricky concept, but it really is easier than it sounds. Here you can find everything you need to know about guardians, the answer to crypto security.

The Simple Version

Picture an overarching password that gets you into your wallet.
Now picture that password is made up of 5 smaller passwords - this already sounds more secure right?
Each smaller password contains data but cannot be used on its own, it is effectively useless.
You keep 1 password, 2 of your friends keep a password each and the remaining 2 passwords are assigned to Gridlock.
To assemble the overarching password, you only need 3 of the smaller passwords, including your one.
Anyone from outside these 5 parties cannot get access because they do not have a password. It is tied to the devices. Furthermore, your share of the password is the only one that can gain access.
If a smaller password is lost or stolen, it can be replaced and the network is complete again.
There is no way for anyone other than the user to assemble the overarching password and access the wallet.
