Q1: Why should I use Crypt-o?
 
A1: Crypt-o provides a centralized customizable database for securely storing any kind of information like employees or customers lists, logins, passwords, PIN codes, credit card numbers, access codes, files, etc. Allowed users can access the Crypt-o database from any networked computer.

 

Q2: When I open a web page in a browser, Crypt-o fills it automatically, but only the Password field is filled. How do I "teach" Crypt-o to fill out User Name field also?
 
A2: You need to edit field bindings for the record linked to this form. To do that, press and hold down the Shift key and then select the "Fill Form" item on your browser's popup menu or on the program's tray icon menu. Then select the "Review field bindings" option for the record and choose which form fields correspond with the record fields. Press "Done" to save new field bindings.

 

Q3: I have 2 accounts for a web site. But Crypt-o always fills login information automatically with the first account's credentials. Can Crypt-o ask me, data from which account should it use for filling the form?
 
A3: To fill a form with data from another record, press and hold down the Shift key and then select the "Fill Form" item on your browser's popup menu or on the program's tray icon menu. You will be able to choose the other record for your web site. From now on, you will be asked, which record is to be used for fill out the web site.

 

Q4: Is it possible to completely hide some folders for a user, while leave them visible to other users?
