Besides the maximum-level encryption that oneSafe uses, the app also comes with multiple other security features. Most of them are configurable from the “Settings” screen.
Different types of passwords:
oneSafe offers you four basic types of password ranging from a simple PIN to a sophisticated alphanumeric code:
2. Visual code
This password is based on a visual pattern using a series of digits. With this type of password, you’re not limited to only four digits. Just be sure to trace your unique pattern out of sight of prying eyes!
3. Alphanumeric code
This password type guarantees you the highest level of protection. The optimum combination would be a minimum of eight characters that do not spell any existing word, using lower case and upper case letters, some numerical digits and a special character. For example, you could base it on the first or last letters of your favorite expression or song.
Second level of protection:
Within oneSafe, you can use the categories to organize your information. The “Double Protection” category is password protected, providing you with a second level of protection for your most valuable data. In addition, all the other categories give you the option of protecting them with a password as well. To do this, go to the “Categories” screen by hitting the name of the category at the top of the page (e.g. “Wallet”). From the “Categories” screen, hit the “Edit” button at the top right. Then, touch the category you’d like to password protect, to edit its features. Finally, slide the “Protected by a password” option to “ON.” The next time you try to enter that category, it will ask you to set up a password. For more information on editing categories, see this page.
The auto-lock feature will lock oneSafe automatically after a specified period of inactivity. Go to “Settings,” then “Advanced Security,” then hit “Auto-lock” to configure the amount of inactivity time before auto-lock kicks in.
A password is like a toothbrush; it should be changed regularly! The simpler it is, the more often it needs to be updated. Use the password reminder feature to let oneSafe remind you when it’s time to for a change. To find this feature go to ”Settings,” then “Advanced Security.”
However, if you want to create a maximum level of security, you can choose to activate the “Self-destruction” feature. This means that all your data will be erased after three failed attempts to login. Please think carefully before deciding to activate this feature because, once your data has been erased in this way, it cannot be retrieved. To activate this feature go to ”Settings,” then “Advanced Security.”
