How Do I Set a Password for My Credential Wallet?

To access all available features for your credentials and any private credentials, you will need to be signed into your Credential Wallet. To do that, you will need to set a password.

What is a Credential Wallet?

When your Issuer published a their first credential to you through your email address, the Accredible system automatically created a new Credential Wallet account for that credential to live in. Every credential in our system exists inside a Credential Wallet. The only thing missing from that Credential Wallet account is a unique password, set by you.

For more information on Credential Wallets, please see our Credential Wallet FAQ Page.

If you have already set a password for you Credential Wallet and receive more credentials in the future, you do not have to set a password each time. You only need to set a password the first time.
