    What is recovery contact?

    Generally, by the term Recovery Contact, individuals will perceive the idea that it means recovering contact lists in their mobile phones. Well, this Recovery Contact is not that. When it comes to Recovery Contact on iOS 15, iPad OS 15, and macOS Monterey, it refers to a particular individual who will have the authority to verify the identity of the iOS 15, iPad OS 15, and macOS Monterey owner and help the owner to access his/her account in emergencies. For instance, you get locked out or forget your Mac’s password or you need some important data from Mac but you are not around, then with the help of your ‘recovery contact’ person, you will be able to log in to your account. Your Recovery Contact should be the person you trust the most and that can be someone from your family or your friends, whoever you trust the most.
