ID Hole Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is ID Hole?

ID Hole is a website that provides users with the opportunity to save personal and/or business information such as, but not limited to, account numbers, usernames, passwords, and other identification information for online accounts and other personal and/or business accounts. This information is highly encoded and encrypted so that only the user can access it. Links to websites where users have accounts and contact information can be included for added convenience. All you need to remember is one password, username and encryption key to access all of your account information!

2. How does ID Hole keep my passwords and account information confidential?

Every ID Hole member will be assigned both a password and encryption key along with his/her username. The encryption key will be exactly eight (8) characters, numbers (0-9) and letters (A-Z). The encryption key must have at least one letter, at least one number, and at least one capital letter. The encryption key cannot be the same as the password.

3. What is an encryption key?

An encryption key is your personal key that you will need to remember in order to access your information. This key is used to encrypt your personal information that you enter into the site. This key is very important to keep in your head. If this password is lost, you will lose all of your information. You cannot reset your encryption key or have it sent to you because it would make the site and your information less secure. We do not have your encryption key. We do not store your encryption key. You should not share your encryption key with anyone.

4. Who will have access to my account information?

You will need to click on the link that says "I forgot my username/password." You will be asked a couple of security questions that you answered when you created your account and you will need to enter in your encryption key. Your username or password will be sent to the email address you provided.

YOU MUST REMEMBER YOUR ENCRYPTION KEY! If you do not, you will lose access to your account permanently. ID Hole does not have access to your encryption key, only you do!
