To work with Password Depot, you need to activate the software. To work with the freeware version or the trial version, you can simply use the program without activating it.

The software activation is done within the program itself. To do so, please click on the FILE tab -> Additional -> Unlock. There opens a dialog window offering two options:

NOTE: Please note the difference between activation key and unlock code! The Unlock code is sent to you after you have ordered your software whereas an activation key is requested within the software itself by clicking on the corresponding button.


NOTE: In order to activate the software, you need to be connected to the internet.

The activation wizard takes you through following three steps in order to unlock Password Depot.

1. Enter Personal Information

At first, the wizard asks you to enter your personal details. All fields marked with an asterisk are obligatory and must be filled in.  

IMPORTANT: Your activation key will be sent to the email address you indicated in your personal data. Therefore, please enter an email address that is valid and that you can access during the registration process. Do not use the email address of a third person.

2. Request Activation Key

Click the Request Activation Key button. A free activation key will be sent to the email address you had previously specified within a few minutes.

Having received the activation key, enter it into the corresponding field.

NOTE: You can request a new activation key if you need to activate your software again. This is for free and can be done as often as necessary.

3. Enter Unlock Code

Enter the unlock code which you received when ordering the software.

NOTE: You can check if your activation of the program has been successful if you go to the main menu -> Additional and look at the field on the right side. Here it should be written that the programm is licensed for you.
