Creating New Password

Locating the Creation Button: At the bottom of the screen, you'll find a prominent orange plus button, typically designed to stand out for easy identification.

Beginning the Process: Tap on this orange plus button. This action signals the app to enter the password creation mode.

Step 3: Define the Password's Name and Location

Activating Delete Protection: For added security, especially against accidental deletions, toggle the 'Delete Protection' option. This adds an extra layer of confirmation before any deletion can occur.

Step 5: Define Credentials

In the 'Username' field, enter the username or login ID associated with the password.

In the 'Password' field, you have two options:

  1. Manually type in the desired password.
  2. Utilize the password generation feature by tapping on the icon located at the end of the 'Password' field.
