You probably wouldn’t, but some would. Whoever is the third party is irrelevant however, it could be anyone really. Some might prefer a single party.
Perhaps splitting a key among 5 friends, where any 3 could restore it might be a good solution though. You would just write the public id of five people, they would get a message with their part of the key and as long as at least three of those people still have access to their SAFE accounts you would be able to restore your account. The five people shouldn’t know who the others are unless you notify them. To initiate recovery there could be something like a recover account button which would send a message to the five individuals, describing the situation and telling them to contact the account holder to check if the account really should be recovered, unless the account holder is dead.

Paranoid? First encrypt key with password only you know. Problem solved.
[/quote] The whole point is to be able to recover if you lose your password, so this kinda defeats the whole purpose.
I still think there’s a case to be made for having different ways of recovering accounts/passwords/keys whatever for data for writing(domains,safecoins) and reading(documents,pictures). Their security characteristics are not the same.
