Status app is currently in beta stage
The Status app is currently in its beta stage. This means the application is still undergoing active development, and certain features described in this document may function differently or be unavailable within the app.
The new Status mobile app is still in progress. If you use the current version of Status mobile app, you can't use it to sync your profile created on the Status desktop.
If you use Status on more than one device, sync your profile so that it's up to date on every device and you can switch between them seamlessly. Without syncing, you are likely to configure the same options more than once and receive multiple notifications for one single message.
Currently, you can only set up syncing using the Status mobile app, but you can pair a computer using your phone.
You can pair up to three devices.
Once you set up the syncing, your Status profile data on your devices are in sync automatically until you unpair the devices.
Your profile data include your message status (read or unread) and configuration for the profile, messaging, notification, wallets and browser.
Your messages are not part of your profile data. When you sync a new device, only the messages sent or received in the last 30 days are available on your new device. Messages you receive from that initial sync are always available.
If you have multiple profiles, you need to set up syncing for each one of them.
When setting up syncing, you need to reveal the QR code or sync code on the primarily used device and scan or enter the code on the other device.
Tap your profile picture and go to . Proceed depending on your situation.
If you have never used Status on your other device before, tap and then tap .
If you already use Status on your other device, find it in the list and tap next to it.

Alternatively, tap .
|Running Status|Tap your profile picture and go to . Tap to scan the QR code shown on your main device or tap to enter the sync code.
During the syncing process, make sure Status is running on both devices and connected to the internet. Under the QR code, you can see the validity time of the QR code and the sync code. If the codes expire, confirm your profile credentials again and get new ones.
Turning off syncing degrades your experience with Status. But you can turn it off when you want to dispose of a device, or you see a device you don't recognize.
In Status on one of your devices, tap your profile picture.
