At the heart of vaultbox security are deputies.  Your designated deputies are the people who can come together to unlock your vaultbox in the event of you losing your password, or being physically unable to do so yourself.

Two deputies need to come together to unlock your vaultbox, but you can specify more.  We suggest appointing three just in case.

3 steps to full peace of mind with your deputies:

  1. Specify a minimum of 2 deputies. You may also appoint Watiga Trust, a licensed trust company, as your professional deputy.

  2. Your deputies need to sign in and accept their appointment as deputy.

  3. After they accept, you need to distribute the backup keys to them by clicking "Distribute keys" in the Deputy tab.  We will shortly be changing this to be automatic.
