Multiple Identities

With Brillion, you have the flexibility to create and manage multiple identities, each with its own unique address and information. These identities function similarly to additional addresses in a MetaMask wallet, but they offer so much more. In addition to having their own addresses, identities include social credentials, KYC processes, and ZK proofs.

It's worth noting that identities remain separate from one another and aren't linked. This feature offers users increased privacy and security, as they can keep different aspects of their digital identity compartmentalized. Whether you need different identities for personal or business purposes, Brillion has you covered.

How to create a new identity

To access your profile, simply click on your profile picture located at the top left corner, and select the "profile" option.

Once you get to the Identity profile, click on the Identity number or name.

You'll be able to see all your existing identities displayed at the bottom of the page. You can switch between identities by simply clicking on the one you'd like to access. If you don't have more than one identity yet, click on the "Add new" button to create a new one.

Keep in mind that creating a new identity takes some time, as the app works to deploy a new smart wallet in the background. Once the process is complete, you'll have a new identity with a unique address and information.

It's important to note that creating a new identity means you'll need to go through the profile edition process again, including any necessary KYC and ZK proofs. However, any social credentials or connected wallets that you've previously added will remain accessible across all your identities.

Overall, the ability to have multiple identities provides added flexibility and privacy for users, allowing them to keep different aspects of their digital identity separate and secure.

Advantages of having multiple identities

Having multiple identities allows users to diversify their funds in a way that is not possible with a single identity. By creating different identities, users can keep their funds separate and avoid the risks associated with having all their funds in a single account. This also allows users to keep track of their different investments, as each identity can be used for a specific purpose.

In addition, multiple identities can help users avoid doxing. Doxing is the act of revealing or publishing personal information about an individual on the internet without their consent. By having multiple identities, users can protect their personal information by keeping it separate from their public profiles. This is particularly important for individuals who value their privacy and want to protect their personal information from potential malicious actors.

Additionally, there are numerous other advantages to using multiple identities that may appeal to users with different needs and preferences. By providing a flexible and customizable system for managing identities, Brillion aims to provide a secure and efficient way for users to manage their digital assets and interact with the wider blockchain ecosystem.
