3. Labels


In the main app view (Card list) swipe from the left edge to the right to open the Side menu. Or you can press the Hamburger icon (3 horizontal stripes) in the top-left corner. You will see a list of groups and each contains a list of labels.

There are the following groups:

SafeInCloud – the most general labels;
Labels – custom labels;
Security – labels for cards with security doubts;
Special – special labels.

Labels are kind of tags. You can assign any number of them to a card. Then you can filter all cards by a specific label via the Side menu. E.g. you can see all the credit cards by choosing the Credit cards label. 

The most useful labels are All Cards and Favorites. You can also access them via the bottom toolbar in the main view. More info about Labels can be found in the Side menu article.

You can type beginnings of several words to find matching cards. E.g. type “fa 2” to get “Facebook 2”, but not “Facebook 1”.

Tip: Passwords are not included in the search by default, but you can change that via app’s Settings > Preferences > Search
