What if I lose all my devices?

What if I lose all my devices?

Hi,

 

I have F-Secure Key installed and happily syncing on 3 devices: phone, tablet and laptop computer. I was wondering what would happen if I lost all of my devices at once (for instance got robbed, I carry them all with me most of the time)?

 

Would there be any way for me to access my Key data with a new device, if I no longer had access to any of my current devices? If I know my user ID, can I get the (encrypted) data from F-Secure somehow?

 

If not, this would mean I would have to keep a backup of my Key data somewhere else.
