Status app is currently in beta stage
The Status app is currently in beta. This means the app is still undergoing active development, and certain features described in this document may function differently or be unavailable in the app.
You can use your Status profile on multiple devices, like your phone and computer.
If you run Status on another device, sign in by syncing your profile. Otherwise, use your recovery phrase or Keycard to sign in.
You can sign in to your Status profile on a new device if you have used the profile in the past 30 days. Your profile is irrecoverably lost if it's inactive for 30 days, but your wallet funds are safe if you have the recovery phase. In this case, you have to create a new profile.
If you already use Status on another device, sync your profile to sign in. By doing so, your profile is up to date on every device, and you can switch between them seamlessly. Without syncing, you are likely to set up the same options more than once and receive multiple notifications for one single message.

If your profile recovery completes successfully, tap . If the Status app can't recover all your profile information, tap , or . Tap to allow Status app notifications. If you want to enable notifications later, tap . Maintain your device connected to the internet during this process. The Status app tries to fetch your profile information from the Waku peer-to-peer network, which keeps it for up to 30 days. If you don't use your Status profile for over 30 days, you lose it permanently, but your wallet funds remain safe if you know your recovery phrase.
