Your private key is a very big number—about 77 digits long—that is is virtually impossible to guess and is created when you set up your PreVeil account. There’s one private key for each email account you set up in the PreVeil system. If you’ve set up two email addresses (for example for personal and work emails) then you will have two private keys.

What Your Key Does
Your private key is very important because it enables access to all of your encrypted information. Without it, you can’t read or send emails. The PreVeil system doesn’t use passwords; your private key is what authorizes access to your information.
Your Recovery Group
A recovery group is a set of PreVeil users who can help you recover your private key in the event that you’ve lost all your phones and computers that have PreVeil installed on them (i.e. you’ve lost all copies of your private key).
