Anytype ID: How to find it

Anytype ID

In some cases, it is helpful to provide us your AnyID

The Anytype ID is the identification method that Anytype (the app) uses to match with your Recovery Phrase and allows us to understand if a user exists (just that) and can provision users to delete their encrypted data from our backup node by request & consent that all their information will be deleted.

  • Your AnyID serves no purpose other than to distinguish your account from others, and cannot be used to access your account or retrieve your Recovery Phrase.

  • Do not send us (or anyone you don’t extremely trust) your Recovery Phrase. Additionally, we will never ask for it.

From Top menu:
