    There are two ways to recover your ID:

    1. The first way is a back-up on the uPort servers: go to Settings and choose Account Back Up and follow the instructions.  (I have not tried this approach myself.)  This approach might allow you to retrieve the credentials and other info (but I haven't tested so I'm not sure).
    2. The second way is to back up your ID without saving on uPort servers: go to Settings and choose Account Recovery and follow the instructions to see your seed words.  Write those down and keep them in a safe place.  Then, when you reinstall the app and want to recover, you enter those words and you have access to your ID.  This approach won't retrieve any credentials or other info.
