You can change your Account Password at any time, like when you want to make it stronger or if it was used for another account.


The password you use to unlock mSecure is called your account password. If you know your account password, you can change it at any time. Additionally, all mSecure backups are encrypted with the account password in use at the time of the backup’s creation. In order to restore from a backup file, you will need to know the password that was used to encrypt it.


Please note that only mSecure 5 uses an account system. All previous versions of mSecure do not have an account system. To learn how to change your device specific login password in the previous versions of mSecure, please find the related article for your platform of choice HERE.
