iCloud syncing, a way to keep all of your Apple devices in sync using Apple’s iCloud Drive.


When you first sign in to an mSecure account or create an account in mSecure 5, you will be asked to choose which sync option you’d like to use. You can choose iCloud syncing option at this point. You can also change your sync option at any point to use iCloud if you would like.


Due to Apple’s security policies, only the Mac App Store and iOS version of mSecure are able to use iCloud syncing. iCloud sync won’t work between different iCloud accounts because Apple doesn’t allow sharing of files between iCloud accounts.


In order to use iCloud syncing in mSecure, there are two settings you will need to make sure are setup correctly.These two settings are the email associated with your iCloud account and the iCloud Drive  setting, each of which are found in the Settings for iOS or iCloud Preferences on Mac. You must be using the same iCloud account on the devices that you intend to use mSecure with and you must make sure that iCloud Drive is enabled.



 

iOS

  1. Open and unlock mSecure
  2. Tap the menu icon
  3. Tap “Settings”
  4. Tap “Sync Settings”
  5. Tap “Choose Sync Settings”
  6. Select “iCloud”


The sync option is an account wide option. If you change the sync setting on one device, any other device or computer that you are signed in to in mSecure will also be updated to use the new sync option.


To do a manual sync on iOS, you need at least one record in mSecure 5:

  1. Tap and hold the top record
