Account Setup

A: iKeyVault is protected by a dynamic, unpredictable passcode that you define, not a convoluted system-created password, so that your data is easier for you to access from anywhere. Also, in our next release, we will be offering several other unique vaults with different user-defined access controls and sharing parameters that differentiate our product from other password managers.

A: All you need is your name, an e-mail account (which also serves as your login username), and your phone number. No credit card or other form of payment is required for the Smart Version of iKeyVault.

Setting Passcode

A: Select at least two variables – at least one must be dynamic but the other can be a constant of your choice.  Use a computation factor or formula to arrive at your resulting code. It’s that simple!  You can always add an optional third variable for extra security.

A: At present, we offer the following six variables:

  • Date: Your system date in a two-digit format (DD).
  • Time: Your system time in a 24-hour format (HHMM).
  • Weather: The current temperature for your location in a two-digit format (FF)
  • Stock: The latest opening value of the stock for the current day of the stock symbol you picked ($$$¢¢).
  • Twitter: The first word of the first tweet (ignoring pinned tweets).
  • RSS Newsfeed: The first word of the newsfeed.
  • Constant: User-defined alphanumeric variable.

We will be offering you unlimited variables (where you can choose any URL) in our upcoming Genius Version.

A: If both your variables are numerical, you will be able to add, subtract, multiply, or divide the two numbers to create your passcode. Otherwise, you will have to append the two variables with Variable 1 first, followed by Variable 2. Note: Ignore any decimal points and use the entire variable as one number.

A: We recommend that both of your two variables are dynamic (not constant). We also provide an option to use three variables in your passcode for extra security.

A: Here are some good examples of passcodes:

  1. Date (DD) + Time (HHMM) If the date is June 25, 2018 and the time is 1:30 pm, then your passcode will be 25+1330 = 1355.
  2. Stock ($$$¢¢) * Weather (FF) If the opening stock for the company you choose opens at $36.25 and the temperature is 100°F, then your passcode will be 3625*100 = 362500
  3. Date (DD) A RSS Newsfeed (first word) A Constant If the date is June 25, 2018, the first word on the BBC newsfeed is “Climate,” and the constant you choose is “Hello,” then your passcode will be 25ClimateHello.

Inside the Vault

A: Under Managed Sites, click on the Add New button in the upper right-hand corner. A box will popup asking you for:

Title: Set this to the name you want to appear on the iKeyVault website for the added site. If you don’t set it, it will automatically pull a title from the URL.

URL: Enter the login URL for the website. (We recommend you copy and paste the URL from the login page.)

Username: Enter the username you use for that specific website.

Password: Enter the password you use for that specific website. You can click on the eye icon to view the password.

Tags: Set tags for the site. You can search for sites using tags in the search box at the top of the page.

Notes: Enter any notes that you may want to refer to later. For example, clues to the answers to security questions.

A: Once you add a website, under the Actions column, you can share, edit, delete, or pin the website.  You must also download the iKeyVault browser extension (plugin), in order to click through and automatically log into your stored accounts.

A: Once you add a website, click on the share icon under Actions. A box will popup asking you for:

Email: Enter the email address you wish to share the account with. The recipient will have to log into iKeyVault to access this account.

Shared Until: Enter the date until which you wish to share the account. You can leave this blank to share for an unlimited duration.

Load More

A: When you share a specific website in your ID Vault with someone, you are giving them full access to that website. You should therefore only share access to websites with people you trust.  However, your trusted parties will have access only to the content you share with them, not all the information in your vault, and cannot share your access any further.

Plugin

A: You don’t need the plugin, but it allows you to automatically log into the websites you’ve stored in your Vault and helps you save time!

Load More

A: Some websites prevent auto-login to prevent robots.  For such websites, the iKeyVault plugin will insert the username and password automatically, but you must click the login button to enter the site.  Other websites are not yet equipped for the iKeyVault technology. Please contact the website customer service and ask them to accept iKeyVault authentication.

Load More

A: No. All your stored websites, usernames, and passwords are encrypted and stored on the cloud.  Nothing is downloaded to a local machine or your device.
