Wenn Sie sich aus Elements abmelden und erneut anmelden oder Elements auf einem weiteren Gerät einrichten, werden Sie nach Ihrem Sicherungsschlüssel gefragt. Wenn Sie den dann nicht zur Hand haben, haben Sie keinen Zugriff mehr auf Ihre alten verschlüsselten Chats.
**Alternativ** zum "Sicherheitsschlüssel generieren" können Sie sich auch selbst eine starke Sicherheitsphrase (bitte nicht das Hochschulpasswort!) erstellen. Weiterhin wird der Sicherungsschlüssel zusätzlich zur Sicherheitsphrase erstellt und sollte als Notfallschlüssel sicher und wiederauffindbar verwahrt werden. Die Sicherheitsphrase wird immer einzugeben sein, wenn Schlüssel mit der Schlüsselsicherung synchronisiert werden sollen.

* The public names of your devices which can be assigned here (by clicking on them with the mouse) can also be viewed by your conversation partner:inside. This helps if they want to compare the cryptographic keys of your devices (e.g. laptop + cell phone) and can easily identify the device names.
* The many cryptographic keys are stored on the respective device. If this is e.g. a tab in a browser, there is a risk that this tab will be closed unintentionally. Then all encrypted contents are no longer readable. To prevent this from happening, a key protection is offered on the home server of the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, on which (protected by a passphrase) all cryptographic keys are stored encrypted.

If not set up after initial registration: The **Key Backup** is a valuable achievement, as it enables the keys of all end-to-end encrypted calls to be centrally secured on the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences server with a password. This allows convenient use of multiple devices or matrix clients. To do so, click on "Start using key backup" and choose a strong security phrase (but not the University password). This security phrase will always have to be entered if keys are to be synchronized with the key backup.

Alternatively, instead of the security phrase, you can also have a security key generated that serves the same purpose as the security phrase. Furthermore, the security key is generated in addition to the security phrase and should be kept safe and retrievable as an emergency key (e.g. save it as .txt file or print it out)
