Getting started with Password Keeper using PRIV

HOW-TO / 11.11.15 / tywill1

app-password-keeperOne of my favorite PRIV apps is Password Keeper. It allows me to keep all of my login details, passwords, and other important records in one location, safe and secure.

I cannot stress enough the value of this app and I encourage you to try it out. Having all of your data in one location, safe and secure, will come in handy at some point

To help you get started with Password Keeper, check out the overview below:

If you used Password Keeper on a BlackBerry 10 device you can export and import your data into your PRIV. For an overview of the different methods you can use to accomplish this, check out “How to import BlackBerry 10 Password Keeper data to PRIV.”Before we begin:

  1. A single password is used to secure Blackberry Password Keeper data – do not forget this password as it cannot be reset, and entering the wrong password 10 times will result in your Password Keeper data getting erased as a security precaution.

If you haven’t already opened Password Keeper on your PRIV, do so and set your password.
Since this password is used to access all of your data within Password Keeper, we highly recommend using a strong password.

Tip: Check out the Password Keeper web based training course!

After setting your Password Keeper data, it’s time to start adding and managing records.
