Q: About the Spirion (formerly Identity Finder) profile password


The Spirion (formerly Identity Finder) Profile saves all your settings and securely saves any information you enter into the OnlyFind List and the Ignore List. Since some of this information is confidential, the Profile requires a password to sign into it securely.

Another very useful feature of the Profile is that once you sign in, your password can be used for other actions without you having to type it again. For example you can use that same Profile Password for saving results and securing files. If you secure a file using Spirion, your file will be encrypted. To access (unencrypt) the file, you will need to enter the Profile Password.

Warning: If you forget the password, you will not be able to open the file.

Each time you start Spirion you will be asked to sign into your Profile. You can hit Cancel and use the Guest Profile, if you prefer.

You can always customize your Spirion Profile and change your password or delete your profile, if needed, using the Profile Preferences window.
