ID vs localhost ID

Hi folks, noob here, just getting started so feel free to point me to the right post if I missed it.

I’ve created ID via and verified it with a bunch of social networks.
Now I’ve installed Blockstack macOS locally and it’s using local identity which is different and not verified.

Is there a way to merge them or what’s the right way to go about it without making a bunch of new public posts?

Thank you! :heart:

Hey @yuriy, you can backup your 12-word keychain phrase in the settings screen in the browser. Then you can restore your ID on another browser instance .

Thanks! What’s the best way to understand how identity data works?
These two?
