1. Database setup

Start the app and choose one of the suggested options depending on your previous password manager usage experience. 

Choose to create a new database if you’ve never used SafeInCloud before.

If you’ve used SafeInCloud before, choose to restore your data from a cloud. Then configure the same cloud account as before.

2. Password

Set and confirm a password for your new database. Choose a relatively complex password with letters and digits in it.

Remember your password! If you forget it, then you won’t be able to reset it or access your data.

Tip: you may press the Keypad icon on the toolbar to switch the keyboard layout.

3. Face ID / Touch ID

The app will ask if you want to enable login with Face ID or Touch ID.

You can always configure login with Face ID or Touch ID later via the app’s Settings > Security > Authentication.

4. Setup plan

In order to help users with configuring the key features after installation/data restoration the setup plan will be shown. The setup plan is built up according to your previous password manager usage experience.

There is a check-up list with the key functions recommended for the app configuration. An appropriate section of the app can be opened for configuration by tapping on any option in the list.
!NB Once the element is selected, the appropriate element will also be struck out.

Setup plan can be opened via the More (3 dots) menu on the bottom toolbar in the main view.

5. Cloud sync

The app will ask you to configure Cloud sync. Choose a cloud, where you already have a registered account, and enter your credentials.

Configure Cloud sync! This will allow you to restore your data in case of device loss or transfer to a new device. This also enables the data to sync across all your devices and computers.

You can always configure Cloud sync later via app’s Settings > Databases, choose the required database from the list and then select Configure cloud.

Tip: By choosing Another cloud option, you may sync with any other cloud service that supports WebDAV protocol. Though, you might need to contact their support and request the appropriate settings. Power users may also configure the sync with their own NAS via WebDAV.

6. Autofill

Finally, configure Autofill in the phone’s Settings. Select Passwords > Password Options. Then turn AutoFill Passwords and Passkeys on and select SafeInCloud.

This will allow you to input your passwords and logins automatically into apps and browsers. Read how here: Autofill

Tip: Some apps might not support the autofill mechanism yet. Their respective developers should implement autofill support first.

7. Desktop app

The last step is installing SafeInCloud on your computer. Download a free desktop application for Windows 7-11 or Mac at
