Lavabit to Briefly Reinstate Services for Data Recovery

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ Beginning today, Ladar Levison, founder of Lavabit LLC, will begin the process that will allow former users of Lavabit to briefly access their account and recover data lost from the initial shutdown.

To begin this process, the user will first be allowed to change their password during a 72 hour period, beginning tonight at 7:00 PM Central. This step was created due to recent events in the news that have lead people to believe that their account information may have been compromised. If users are indeed concerned that their account information has been compromised, this will allow them to change their account password on a website with a newly secured SSL key. Following the 72 hour period, Thursday, October 17 th, the website will then allow users to access email archives and their personal account data so that it may be preserved by the user.

This comes in the wake of the abrupt shutdown of Lavabit this past August, wherein many were left without a way to access their sensitive data. For those who used Lavabit's email service, they were left without a way to access information after the shutdown. When asked about how his users felt about the loss of personal data, Mr. Levison said "I'm in the same boat as them. I used my Lavabit email account for 10 years. It was my only email account."

Former users are advised to visit the website https://liberty.lavabit.com to begin the process of recovery.

For more information, contact the LLDF at legal@lavabit.com, or (703)291.1999. To support Mr. Levison in his court battle, please visit https://rally.org/lavabit
