Why we need your phone number and email address for Argent Guard
Default Argent guardian is a "Guardian Service" operated by Argent. It works in the same way as your other guardians to protect your funds. You can read about guardians in depth on our blog.
When you activate Argent guardian, we send you a text message and email each time you need to do something that requires guardians. You verify that you have access to the phone number and email address. Argent guardian then "signs" its approval.
If you have other guardians, you may also need some of them to approve before the action will go ahead. guardians always work in consensus.
You can turn off default Argent guardian at any time, however, you will need to add at least one other guardian prior to it.
