What is the recovery code?

General questions

The recovery code is a unique 36-digit code that allows you to regain access to your SecureSafe account, if you have forgotten your username or password. You can only create and print the recovery code from within your SecureSafe.

It is absolutely essential that you print a version of your recovery and keep this in a secure place. As a part of our security measurements, SecureSafe has NO access whatsoever to your password nor to your recovery code so we cannot reset your account it if you loose both. Without the recovery code or a valid username-password combination, your data will be irretrievable lost.

To find / print your recovery code, follow these steps:

In the web interface

  • Log in to your SecureSafe account here.
  • Click your username in the upper right-hand corner and choose “Settings” from the drop-down menu.
  • Click "Recovery" and either note down the code manually or click “Display PDF” to download a PDF version.
  • Once done, click “Save and close”.

We recommend that you keep the printed version of your recovery code in a safe place. After printing, be sure to completely delete the recovery code (put it in the trash and choose "Empty trash").

For iOS / Android devices:

  1. Log in to your account via your iOS / Android device.
  2. Go to "Settings".
  3. Press "Recovery code".
  4. Note down the recovery code and keep it in a safe place.
