#### What is the difference between passphrase and recovery key? {#securityphrase-vs-securitykey}
The password that can access the key backup is called the recovery key and is very long, starts with a capital E and should be saved or printed after setup. Since this password is hard to remember in everyday life (e.g. when you are on the road, want to have a look at Matrix, but only have access to other computers) you can think of a (easy to remember) passphrase from which the recovery key can be calculated (in the browser/client) before trying to "open" the key backup.

#### Can I modify access permissions for all rooms in my community, that only members of the community can enter? {#roompermissions-in-communities}
No, this is not possible. Rooms can be part of multiple communities. Therefore the access permission will be set on room based level.

#### Can I manage multiple Matrix-Account on my Element Desktop Client? {#multiple-accounts-element}
With the Element Desktop client, you can only manage one Matrix-Account right now. But it is possible to start several Element-windows with different Matrix-Accounts, also within your Autostart-settings of your computer. Therefore, you need to change (or create additional) execution commands to open a specific profile:
```
element-desktop --profile PROFILE_NAME
```
So you can place several Element-Starters in your Autorstart, with different profile names, e.g. --profile TUD or --profile Private. Unfortunately, both opened windows will appear with the same Icon in the Indicator-Applet. But therefore, a solution will upcome soon, for sure...
Furthermore, there are other Matrix-Clients, that can handle more Matrix-Accounts per se, e.g. [weechat](https://matrix.org/docs/projects/client/weechat-matrix), [Spectral](https://matrix.org/docs/projects/client/spectral), [Quaternion](https://matrix.org/docs/projects/client/quaternion), or [Mirage](https://matrix.org/docs/projects/client/mirage).
