What are Social Guardians?

Created by Ethos Support, Modified on Fri, 24 May 2024 at 11:29 AM by Ethos Support

Inspired by a thesis from Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, Ethos introduces Social Guardians as one of the many security layers that set us apart. With Social Guardians, your trusted friends and family can prevent unauthorized key recovery, adding an additional layer of security to your self-custody experience.

Social Guardians let friends and family (or even your own secondary account) prevent an unauthorized key recovery. When a key recovery request is made, the social guardian can veto it to prevent restoration of a wallet.
