Blockcstack Accounts and Identity Questions

So I may have missed or misread somewhere in the documentation, but I have a couple of questions regarding Blockstack:

  • How many Blockstack accounts (
    can a single user own?

  • How can a developer ensure the user using their app goes through a one time identity (passport check)? Would I need a third-party vitrifaction service for this & a central database alongside Blockstack for this type of identity check to work?

  • How can I (a blockstack user) view all the applications that I am connected to using a particular blockstack id? And the data that is being shared?

Something like this:

  • How can I as a developer prevent any browser attacks that could be done within a BlockStack Application that aim to steal a users private key stored in the Local Browser Storage, as well as protect any information the user loads into the application after sign in from Gaia? :thinking:
