This step-by-step Tutorial describes how to install, configure and register MySafePass Storage and how to use it.

2. Creating MySafePass Encrypted Storages
After you successfully downloaded and installed MySafePass, go to ‘Start’->’Programs’->’MySafePass’->’MySafePass Storage’ to run the application. The Welcome Wizard dialog will be displayed. Now you can create a new MySafePass document, or open an existing one. If you choose ‘New…’ command, a window with an empty Storage document will be created. You can now create new folders and sub-folders, add and edit your encrypted password documents, or add your PDF or pictures files to selected folders (see the demo screenshot). When you save the document for the first time, you will be asked for the storage name and for the storage password. You can change this password later. You may choose any name and/or location for your storage file; you may rename it later, or use 'Save As...' command to save it with a different name. You may add as many Web, or other accounts, pictures and other documents and files as you need. You can delete, rename or modify any account or any file under any category.
MySafePass Storage window accepts drag-and-drop operations; you may drag any file or entire folder from Microsoft Windows Explorer window into the MySafePass storage. Any text or binary data dropped into a storage will be saved encrypted within a single, currently opened storage file. You can even drop inside a current storage another encrypted storage file, thus encrypting it multiple times.
To export files from an encrypted storage back into a disk, simply right-click on the tree view window and choose 'Export...' command.
3. Setting Screen Lock Options
The default Screen Lock Options are set to lock the screen in 1 minute of inactivity. The Screen Password is not set. You can change this behavior. On the menu bar select ‘Settings’ -> ‘Screen Lock Options’ command. The Settings dialog will be displayed. Here you can disable this feature, or change idle time to lock the screen, enable a screen password, etc. Please note that the screen password is not a file password, which you specify when you save your encrypted documents.
4. Software Registration
