Regenerating secret key ( emergency kit)

Secret key


I have some questions about the secret key ( regenerate procedure in ios)
No problem… but some questions/ remarks.

When I regenerate my secret key I see the following screenshot.(see image)

In fact I have enough information ( for my “own” emergency kit) and do not need to download.

  1. Can I skip the “”download action”?
    1b. As far as I can see, I need to press download and there is no way to skip the button?

When I press download a emergency kit sheet appears with the new secret key.
I don’t need it ( new secret key is in allready in a safe place) and I close ( press x) this page.

2 What happens if I close (press x) the emergency kit page? Can the webpage of my emergency kit with new secret key still be found in the safari web history on my device?

    Hi support, can you move this topic/question to IOS forum and delete it here in memberships . I accidentally started this topic in the wrong place. 😦🙏

    Hi @F_9083x:

    While we'd definitely recommend using the Emergency Kit, as it's a single PDF you can store securely or print out and save, if you're storing your Secret Key elsewhere in a safe place, then you can skip it.

    The Emergency Kit won't be saved in your Safari history on your device.
