Coming Soon: Fading Account Recovery
If your Guardians cannot help you with transferring your Gridlock wallet to a new device for any reason, we have developed an alternative which also removes the need for a centralized authority.
While central authorities can let you back into your wallet, it means you have to put your trust in a third party. If they cannot grant you access, then the situation is out of your hands and you lose your crypto.
With Gridlock, there is no central authority to fall back on, so we must consider the best way to balance security and usability. We solved this problem with Fading Account Recovery.
If you lose part of your credentials β€” for example, your mobile phone β€” you can put in a request to regain access to your account. After a predetermined amount of time, the system eliminates the need to use that device to access your account.
Your assets remain safe and all you have to do is wait until the Fading Account Recovery engine allows you to recreate your private key and re-establish access.
