I've been asked a few times about this lately, this is one of the easiest ways for people to change their account recovery partner away from
steem which is currently non responsive, and generally not the most trusted right now.
For example my #palnet tribe account at https://steemworld.org/@wizardofaus
You'll be prompted for the username of your new recovery partner. Make sure it's someone you can trust to respond to your request within 30 days. This person needs to be able to be certain its you, discuss how you will contact and positively identify each other.
You will need your OWNER key to authorise this transaction. Currently only direct key entry, and steemconnect are available for this (no steem-keychain yet).
Hit OK and you're done! You'll see the recovery partner change request appear on the blockchain immediately, but the change will not take effect for 30 days from submission.
Steempeak now also has a brand-new very user friendly account recovery tools. I didn't realise when I started this post, but I may as well show both options now :)
You can access account recovery tools by going to your profile, and clicking "actions" in the header : Then click "Keys & Recovery" and the "Account Recovery" tab And enter your new recovery account, and your owner key
The change will be submitted, and take effect 30 days later.
Thankyou @steemchiller for this tool, you get 50% of the payout of this post.
Update: Recoveries at steemit inc were fixed today (11/03/2020)- I would still recommend people take control of their own account recovery.
@tipu curate Thanks for the useful how to! 🙏
Thank you very much for this, in particular, and for all your hard work to implement voluntary society. Few of us plebs realize the debt we owe you.

Thanks for this update. I think it would be a nice idea to create a Claimed account and set that account as recovery account. Because we need to consider people who like to remain anonymous.
Excellent thank you. As I understand it, a trustee will not be able to steal Steem, the main thing is that he be in touch for 30 days - right? If people trust you, can they choose you?
@ausbitbank should this be done for accounts who have the @steem account listed as their recovery account?
Next tut is about how to create an account with the same tool... I don't think Sunny-boy is admitting new users right now 😉
Now, one can also do it directly via @steempeak. It's one of their newly introduced features.
Make sure it's someone you can trust to respond to your request within 30 days
That's the most difficult part :) Using a Claimed account may be another option.
Why should I change the recovery account? Could you give me some reason for such a move?
If you want to do it without SteemWorld, I wrote a post a while ago on how to do it via CLI.
In the process of switching all our accounts and moving the specific accounts from the Steem account as the recovery account. Didn't know about Steemworld's ability as well. That's awesome. Thanks for pointing it out. We are the recovery for many of the accounts that we've helped on-board already, so they are safe.
thanks for the post! I am still a bit unsure about this: so in case my account gets hacked, there is a recovery account (default is @steem) that will help me gain access to my account again (does this happen by sending me new passwords)?
And would it make sense if I were to set up an alt account (which I made myself) as my recovery account?
Thank you so much for sharing this!
That's all good and all but I don't have any trusted friends on steem. :(
cool, that @steempeak has now also implemented this feature :)
Just did this for my wife and I this morning. Super easy through SteemWorld. Everyone needs to change if Steemit is still set as their recovery.
I like the idea of a new account that can be used as the recovery account. Then the keys can just be locked up and the account only accessed when needed for the recovery. I am going to do it but I just set ours so have to wait before I can, I presume.
It's always good to know various options for recovering keys and passwords.
Thabks for the mentions...
If Steemit isn't making accounts now, they probably aren't recovering them either. So if recovery account = steem , change now!
Thank you very much for sharing this 😉👍 Great info and good to know.

From a security standpoint! Do you believe is mandatory to change the recovery password at this stage from Steemit to Steemworld or Steempeak?
Good information about success... Thank for sharing..
This also doesn't work for me using any of the two methods. And it doesn't work trying to reveal my private owner key and copy-paste it again, I only see it being made out of points even after I click to reveal or reload the page...
I keep getting this error :)
Thank you for information $trdo
Do i have a recovery account? When i signed up, there wasn't even a whisper of such a thing.
i was told, here is you key, right it down, copy it, make sure to keep it safe because there is no recovery.
So, was steemit always a recovery account?
Thanks for your upload It's very useful
i just did a spanish translation of this post thanks a lot for the information @ausbitbank
Thanks for the great advice and article. Not sure who to select as the recovery account. Can this be individuals? Would @blocktrades be an option for example?

Congratulations @ausbitbank, your post successfully recieved 0.15579338 TRDO from below listed TRENDO callers:
Are the transactions signed on the user's browser when using steemworld or steempeak? or the owner key sent to their servers and executed there?
