Account creation must occur before a user can join a team, join a Space and start collaborating with other Team Members. SpiderOak Share uses a unique system during account creation to link your account to your keys. One Key is an Account ID key that is shared with the Team Admins so they may add users to the team, and the other Key is the user’s account Recovery Key. The account Recovery Key allows users to add thier Share account to other devices and recover the current account if it’s ever lost.
During the account setup, the user is required to copy and paste this key to confirm the user has recorded it. If this key is lost, the account cannot be recovered and all Personal Spaces associated with this account will be lost. SpiderOak strongly recommends storing this key securely, as a printed paper copy stored in a safe or in a trusted password manager.
