Security and your NFID

Learn more about security and your NFID

Your NFID is the account that you use to sign in to NFID Services—like your Profile, Wallet, and Vault—and includes your payment and security details. NFID is built on a decentralized network to minimize threat vectors and uses best-in-class security technologies to help secure your data.

Never give your NFID email login, verification codes, device passcode, recovery key, or any account security details to anyone else. NFID will never ask you for this information.

The NFID protocol has strict policies and procedures in place to prevent unauthorized access to your Account. NFID is a self-custody digital identity, which means there is nobody here who can recover your account except you.

Protect your NFID

To help protect your NFID and all the important content that you store with your Account, you can follow these recommendations.

🔒 Protect your account with two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication is designed to make sure that you're the only person who can access your NFID, even if someone else has access to your email account. Learn how to set up two-factor authentication.

🫣 Add two-factor authentication to your NFID email account

NFID’s two-factor authentication is ready for enterprise security. Even if you have it enabled, it’s still good practice and security hygiene to enable two-factor authentication on your email account as well.

🛑 Don’t share an NFID

Don't share an account with other people, even family members. Sharing an NFID means that you're giving someone else access to all of your personal content and assets. If someone else helped you set up your NFID, set up two-factor authentication and make sure your passkeys are the only ones listed.

🛡️ Additional tips to protect your device and data

  • Set up a recovery phrase and do not give it to anyone.
  • Don’t fall for scams. If it sounds like a scam, assume that it is.
