Getting started

We recommend that you follow these ten steps when installing Password Safe version 8. We strongly recommend that you carefully record all configuration information, such as set passwords and similar data.

We will be happy to add any missing information and make it available to you and other Password Safe users.

10. Creating database profiles

The number of databases is not licensed. In theory, any number of databases is thus possible. To keep an overview, it is recommended to create profiles that contain all the parameters required for successful logon to a database.
