"So if your phone is lost, stolen, bricked by dunking in a pint or just replaced by an upgrade how do they access the encrypted data in your profile?"

There is no need. Your name, address, and place of birth are not irreplaceable bits of data.

Remember, this is a way to replace an official ID check. Losing access to encrypted data, you lose nothing important. Not knowing the app, I presume that you being the same person with the same ID, you can easily re-register.
