Verify Peerio Public Keys

You can verify your contact's cryptographic identify by confirming your crypto-avatars or Peerio Public Key with each other, preferably in person or over the phone.

You can find your own and your contacts' miniLock IDs and avatars by going to the contacts tab and selecting a user's name.

Although Peerio will notify you if your contact's avatar or public key ever changes (indicating a possible threat), it is a good security practice to verify your contact's public key when communicating with them for the first time, and when sharing sensitive information.
