You can go through the recovery process whenever you need to reinstall the app, if you forgot your passcode or if your device has been stolen or lost.
Please note that when you reinstall the SwissBorg app, the recovery process will be activated on your device automatically. Once the application is reinstalled, you will need to enter your phone number. Please make sure you type in the correct phone number that is already associated with your account. If you type in a wrong or different phone number, a new account will be created, which is not allowed.
