Passwords Back-up

Embird allows you to easily back-up all inserted passwords into a "PASSWORD.KLC" file stored either on your hard disk, USB memory key, OneDrive cloud, etc. We strongly recommend that you back-up your passwords regularly to avoid problems caused by re-installation, hard disk failure, or virus attack. If you have a back-up copy of your passwords, it is very easy to insert them back into Embird and thus change the demo (evaluation) version into the full version. 

You can also use the steps explained in this tutorial to transfer the passwords from your desktop computer to your laptop, so it will be fully functional on your second computer. However, please note that you may transfer Embird to another computer only as long as the other computer is owned by you and as long as it is used on only one computer at a time.
