Support mSecure

Changing cell phones

Hello, I have bought a new cell phone, and I cant install and use msecure in the new cell. I installed the app. But cant get into it. Thank you in advance, Ronit

HI Ronit,

Thank you for contacting us and I'm sorry about the issue you're experiencing. It sounds like you might have been using mSecure 4 and now downloaded mSecure 5 on your phone. mSecure 5 is the first and only version of mSecure to use an account system. You'll need to create an account to get started with mSecure 5.

Since the older version(s) of mSecure isn't a cloud-based app, there is no way to "sign in" to an account where your information is stored online. Because of this, each older version of the mSecure's login password is device specific and your information is not automatically restored when an older version of mSecure is installed or reinstalled on a mobile device.

Are you running an older version of mSecure on any other devices, and is your data fully intact on at least one of them? If not, have you made any mSecure backups through either the Email Backup feature found in the preferences or through using our free backup software called mBackup? Perhaps you set up iCloud or Dropbox syncing in the older versions of mSecure in the past?

We have an automated reminder in the older iOS app for making backups, so it is possible that you made an email backup some time in the past. Please search in your email accounts to see if you can find an email with "mSecure", "mism" or "mscx" in them. If you find an email backup you can use this guide to restore from an email backup file: or you can restore from that backup in mSecure 5:

How to download the previous versions of mSecure:

I have an older version as well and paid for it.  Now I need to download and create a new account for the new version, as I understand above I have to pay for it again as well?


Hi Chelo,

The purchase of an mSecure 5 license is tied the mSecure account used to purchase it with. You simply need to download mSecure 5 and sign in to the mSecure account you used to purchase mSecure 5 with.


New accounts would need to purchase an mSecure 5 license.

I have Had Msecure for many years and was very happy with it. I purchased Msecure5 for my IPad but was unable to transfer info from Old mSecure to Msecure5. In complete frustration (after many texts back and forth) I erased Msecure5 and have used original MSecure. Now I have a different IPhone and would like to transfer info from IPad to Iphone using old MSecure. Is this possible? I gave up in complete frustration trying to use Msecure5. Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

Hi Allan,

Thank you for contacting us. It's always best to start your own discussion or topic when your discussion is not related to the topic you're in. That said, mSecure 4 let's you either set up a sync feature (Dropbox or iCloud) that you can use to sync your information across mSecure 3 or 4 on any device once you've set up the feature in mSecure 3 or 4 an each device you are using. mSecure 4 also has an email backup feature that you can use to create encrypted backup files and restore from them. Here are guides that should help you. Either set up one of the sync features or use our email backup and restore feature to transfer your mSecure 4 information to mSecure 4 on another device: 

Set up iCloud syncing:

Set up Dropbox syncing:

Also, here's how to redownload the app in case you need it: I'd also be happy to work with you so that you can upgrade to mSecure 5 instead or as well here if you'd like.
