You can restore your Digital ID to a new device by using the unique ‘Seed’ generated during creation. This allows you to resume publishing from the same account. That’s why it’s important to backup your ‘Seed’, and keep it safe. Without it, you’ll have to create a new Digital ID on your new device.
