  • Patent number: 11895114
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide for a satellite device that can be associated with a user account of a minor aged (e.g., child or adolescent) user that does not have a smartphone that can be used as a companion device to the satellite device. The satellite device can be configured to be used as a primary device, without reliance upon a paired smartphone. Certain information can be synchronized with the satellite device via the association with the family account. During initial configuration, a set of cryptographic keys can be generated to associate the account of the satellite device with the set of accounts in the family. The satellite device can then access calendars, media, or other data that is shared with user accounts within a family of user accounts.

  • Patent number: 11601419
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to methods for providing an upgrade option for accessing an account on a service. In some embodiments, the method is performed at a computer system that is in communication with a display generation component and one or more input devices, and includes displaying a user interface that includes information associated with a service provided by a first entity, receiving a first user input, and in response to receiving the first user input, displaying a first selectable user interface object corresponding to an upgrade option. Enabling the upgrade option causes login requests corresponding to requests to log in to the service using an access account to be authenticated by a second entity different from the first entity.

  • Publication number: 20230014800
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to setting up an account for a service. A request to set up an account for a first service is received. In response to receiving the request to set up the account for the first service, a first login option and a second login option are displayed. If an input selecting the first login option is detected, a request to use first contact information for a user to set up the account for the first service is transmitted. If an input selecting the second login option is detected, a request to use second contact information for the user to set up the account for the first service is transmitted. The second contact information is automatically generated for the service and does not reveal the first contact information for the user.

  • Publication number: 20220393867
    Abstract: This Application sets forth techniques for establishing a custodial relationship between a user device and a custodian device for recovering access to a user account and/or to encrypted user data with assistance provided by the custodian device to effect access recovery. A server of a cloud network service provides an anonymous identifier to associate with the custodian device and an account recovery key to store at the custodian device. Identity of an account of the cloud network service associated with the custodian device can be hidden from the server. The user device generates a data recovery key and provides a first portion of the data recovery key to the custodian device and a second portion of the data recovery key to the server. Integrity of the stored account recovery key and portions of the data recovery key are checked regularly by the custodian device and the user device.
