Deputies are at the heart of vaultbox security. As a vaultbox user, your designated deputies are the people who can come together to unlock your vaultbox if you lose your password or are unable to personally open your vaultbox account for any reason.
You may choose either a professional deputy or trusted individuals to have access to your vaultbox. This article focuses on individual deputies. If you are a professional deputy or you want to learn more about how professional deputies work with vaultbox, please see our Frequently Ask Questions here. For trusted individuals, at least two are needed to come together to unlock your vaultbox, but you can specify more. We suggest appointing three.
Navigation to the Deputy menu
As a personal deputy, you can see a consolidated list of the account holders you support by clicking “Primary Users who I am Deputy for”. This is found in the left menu.
The deputy dashboard is made up of the following sections
1. Pending acceptance to be a Deputy
If you invited a friend or family member to be your deputy, that request will appear here for them to approve.
2. I am currently a Deputy for these Primary Users
It is not unusual for someone to serve as a personal deputy for several friends or family members. This section shows a deputy the list of primary users for whom they are currently a Deputy.
For a personal deputy, this section identifies their responsibilities.

4. vaultbox accounts by Primary Users
If you are a vaultbox deputy, details about the vaultbox accounts you are involved with will appear here. To view the registry of the main user, a deputy must first “unlock” the main user account. Please note the number of deputies required to unlock vaultbox. It is impossible for a single personal deputy to open someone’s vaultbox alone.
