Creating a Cyclonis Password Manager Account

Your custom master password must be at least eight characters long, have at least one lowercase letter, have at least one uppercase letter, and contain at least one number.This configuration helps to make your master password difficult to guess. Your master password is for your eyes only – by design, not even Cyclonis staff or servers have access to your passwords and data.

As a result, we have no access to your decrypted data, and we have no way to reset or recover your master password. If you forget your master password, Cyclonis Password Manager cannot decrypt your data and cannot restore access to your passwords or any other data stored in your vault. Make sure you don't lose or forget your master password.
After you have entered your email address and created and entered your master password, click Next to proceed.
- At the next screen, you will be asked to Confirm your master password. Re-enter the master password that you created and entered in the previous step. Click Next to proceed.
