RE: Check your "Recovery Account" now! Important!
Another option for those who may not have someone on the blockchain that they are close to and trust, is to create an account just for their recovery account. They can give the credentials/login information to a trusted friend or family member outside of the chain instead.
This is what I did as soon as I left Steemit and received my Hive account. My husband has all of the information and instructions he needs to recover my account should that be a need.
