Profile Settings - Password

A profile password allows you to apply an added layer of security to your ARKVault profile. You may choose to set, alter or remove this password whenever you wish via the ‘Profile Password’ page. The following information will outline how to:

Access ‘Profile Password’ Settings

Click on the profile icon located in the upper right corner of the page and select Settings from the dropdown menu. The Profile Settings page will appear momentarily under the General tab.

Click the Password tab in the menu located on the left-hand side of the page and wait for the Profile Password page to load.

Create a (New) Password

If your profile is password protected, you may create a new one if required. However, if your profile does not currently require a password, you may create one in order to apply an additional layer of security to your profile.

Password Requirements:

  • 8 characters minimum
  • 1 uppercase character
  • 1 lowercase character
  • 1 number
  • 1 special character

The Profile Password page contains several fields that you will need to fill in order to create a (new) password:

Current Password - If your profile is password protected, you will need to enter your current password here so that you can create a new one. If your profile is not password protected, this field will not appear.

New Password - Create a (new) password that you wish to use for your ARKVault profile.

Confirm New Password - Enter the exact same password you entered in the New Password field to confirm your input.

Attention

If you forget or lose your password, there is no means of recovering it. This means you will lose access to your profile, thus requiring you create a new one and restore your settings and wallets manually. For more information about backing up and restoring profiles, please visit the Profile Export and/or Import pages.
