Short Answer: To use Keeper as a signing device, ensure you’re on the Hodler or Diamond hands tier, then use another phone with Bitcoin Keeper, access its Wallet’s Settings, select “Show Co-signer details”, and scan this QR code with the Keeper app where you want the vault set up.

Long Full Answer:

Using Keeper as a signing device in the Bitcoin Keeper app enhances security by allowing multisig capabilities with another device. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Pre-requisite & Eligibility:
    • You must be subscribed to either the Hodler or Diamond hands tier in the Bitcoin Keeper app to use the Keeper as a signing device.
  2. Prepare the Secondary Phone:

  3. Access Co-signer Details:
    • On the secondary phone with Bitcoin Keeper:
      • Open the app and navigate to Wallet’s Settings.
      • Look for and select the “Show Co-signer details” option. This will display a QR code containing necessary co-signer information.

      • Position the primary phone’s camera to scan the QR code displayed on the secondary phone. Ensure the entire QR code is visible in the scanner’s frame.
  5. Confirmation & Verification:
    • Once the QR code is successfully scanned, the primary Bitcoin Keeper app will process the information.
    • You should receive a confirmation message or notification indicating that Keeper has been successfully added as a signing device for your vault.
  6. Safety Measures:
    • Always make sure you’re in a secure environment when performing these actions.
    • Avoid displaying the co-signer details in public or insecure spaces to prevent unauthorized access.
