What is account id?

The diagnostic log refers to accounts by 16 digits. But a jami id has 40 digits. What is the difference between the two?

For example:
[Account 0123456789abcdef] Dht status: IPv4 connecting; IPv6 disconnected

it’s just a purely random number and corresponds to the directory in $APPDATA where the files for this account is stored.

(~/.local/share/jami/0123456789abcdef on GNU/Linux for example)

So actually, it’s not sensitive (the only thing I know is that “0123456789abcdef” corresponds to a directory.)

The JamiId is the address of the account and the fingerprint of the account key.
