There are several ways to login to D.Buzz. You can login using the Hive Keychain app, or with just your Posting Key.
In this video tutorial, we are going to login to D.Buzz using the Hive Keychain app.
First, make sure you have the Hive Keychain extension installed on your web browser. To do so go to their webpage located here at https://hive-keychain.com/. If you are on your mobile device, you may download the Hive Keychain app for Android or iOS.
If this is your first time using Hive Keychain, on first launch, you will need to insert your Master Password or Posting Key. That Master Password or Private Posting Key is only local to your device.
After you have installed Hive Keychain, you have to import your keys. To make use of D.Buzz, you only need to import your posting key. Click the Hive Keychain icon on your device and select “USE KEYS/PWD”.
On the screen, enter your username in lowercase letters with no “@” symbol in front of it. We then recommend you copy and paste your Private Posting key. After you’ve entered the required information, click the “Import Keys” button.
When you are on D.Buzz, you’ll see a button on the top menu that says “Log In”. When you click that, a pop-up window will appear, asking you to login using your Hive username and Private Posting Key. Below that is a checkbox that says “Login with Hive Keychain”. Check that box. After that, type your username in lowercase with no “@” symbol in front of it.
After the required fields have been filled up, click the “Submit” button.
If you have the Hive Keychain app and imported your “Posting” key successfully, you will be logged in and brought to the “Latest” post section on D.Buzz.
You will only need to import your keys one time into the Hive Keychain app. You will need to import them again if you remove your account from that app or uninstall the extension itself.
As a general rule, it’s important you keep all your private keys safe. Be mindful of how and where you open any file or website that can potentially reveal your keys.
Making use of the Hive Keychain app is the recommended way to login to D.Buzz, and is the most secure.
