Concordium ID: Explore the More page¶
Using the Concordium ID app it is possible to export your accounts and identities. To get started, browse to the More page. Depending on whether you are using the Android or iOS version of the app, the More page will look slightly different. On Android you will see three menu items: Address Book, Export and Import. On iOS you will only see Address Book and Export. This is because the Import feature works in two different ways depending on the platform, but we will get back to that.
To start an export, press the Export option. Doing that will take you to a new page, that briefly explains what an export means. We recommend reading this carefully. Pressing Continue will take you to a page on which you will be asked to enter a password for your export file. After entering it twice, you can Continue. As a last step, you will be prompted by either iOS or Android on what you want to do with your exported file, using the layover from the phone’s operating system.
As mentioned in the previous section, the import feature works slightly differently on iOS and Android. On Android you press the Import option on the More page, which will let you browse to the file you want to import. Depending on your phone and Android version, this might look different specific to the operating system. On iOS you have to browse to the file from outside Concordium ID, and then press it and choose the Share option. This will let you choose Concordium ID as the app to handle the file.
Having opened the file on either platform, you will first be asked to enter the password chosen on export. After pressing Continue you will have to verify yourself with the passcode or the biometrics chosen, when you set up the app. Finally you will get a list of the Accounts, Identities and the Address Book entries you have imported.
As the name suggests, the Address Book is a place to keep account addresses. If you browse to the Address Book you will see that the addresses of your own accounts are already stored there. Besides seeing your own addresses, you can also add more entries to the Address Book, either by pressing the QR code symbol, or pressing the plus sign in the upper right corner. By doing that you can enter a new recipient address and give it a nickname in your Address Book. The entries in your address book can of course be searched, when you make a transfer.
