In this article: Welcome, Database setup, Password, Biometric login, Cloud sync, Autofill, Desktop app.                                                                         

1. Welcome

Start the app and go through the Welcome pages.

2. Database setup

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

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

3. 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 forgot 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.

4. Biometric login

The app will ask if you want to enable Biometric login (if your device has biometric hardware and it’s configured in the phone’s settings).

You can always configure Biometric login later via app’s Settings > Security > Authentication.

Tip: You may select the Default biometric method, then the app will utilize the biometric method selected as preferred in the phone’s settings. Or you may select to always use Fingerprint.

5. Cloud sync

Then 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 to restore your data in case of device loss or transfer to a new device. This also enables the data sync across all your devices and computers.

You can always configure Cloud sync later via app’s Settings > Cloud Sync.

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 config the sync with their own NAS via WebDAV.

6. Autofill

Finally configure Autofill in apps and Autofill in Chrome via app’s Settings > Autofill.

This will allow to input your passwords and logins automatically into apps, Chrome and other browsers.

There are two different autofill mechanisms. Read the how use them in the following articles:
Autofill in apps
Autofill in Chrome

Tip: Some apps, browsers and websites do not support the autofill mechanism yet. Their respective developers should implement autofill support first.
