Credentials - Login credentials will be provided by the IO Customer Office directly to your io.network user/s via the onboarding email. Once you receive your login details, you will be required to reset your password upon logging in for the first time.

It is important to re-download your encrypted device back-up each time a new vault is created, or a signing party is changed that includes the device
Please note - You can confirm mobile device registration by logging in to the web dashboard, clicking on your profile in the top right-hand corner and reviewing your registered devices.
