Reset my password

I forgot my password and need to setup a new one. I was using facial ID and had to reset it.

1 person has this question

I have upgraded my phone and when my data was transferred,my facial recognition function is not working but instead I am being asked for a password which sadly I have forgotten!

I have been trying to sync my mSecure between my iPhone and desktop computer. Please give me some direction. Dave

Hi Dave and Naim,

Sorry for the late replay here. Dave, it looks like you were able to get the password issue fixed, so that is good news. In order to sync your information, it is most simple to turn on mSecure Cloud syncing in mSecure's Sync Settings. Can you tell me which sync feature you have enabled?


Naim, when your phone is upgraded, the facial recognition data in the OS is not carried over to the new device. This means that even if mSecure is restored after the upgrade, you will not be able to use facial recognition to the unlock the app. mSecure doesn't actually store any authentication data in it, so when facial recognition is enabled, the app is simply asking the OS to authentication via facial recognition, and if it says the user is authentic, it passes what is need to the app so the data stored inside it can be decrypted. Since the OS can't authenticate you with the same biometric data from the last device, it's not possible for mSecure to unlock.
