Lockmagic uses your email address as your identity. Before you can access encrypted content, Lockmagic
verifies that you are the owner of the email address.
When you register an email address,
a verification link is sent to the email address that is valid for 5 minutes. Immediately open your email and check for the incoming email message in both inbox and
junk folders. Open the message and follow the instructions to click on the verification link.
Lockmagic also supports phone # or any non-email alias in which case no validation is required. However, you must inform
all other people of your Lockmagic username and to specify it during the encryption process. This option is useful for
people without email addresses and plan to use Lockmagic Mobile App or wish to share using messaging Apps like Whatsapp.
You can register using each method if you wish to use Lockmagic with an email address and mobile #.
Verify your identity using Google or Microsoft
If you're registering a Google or Microsoft account, you can verify your identity by logging in to your account instead of using the email link method. Use the 'Register your Google email'
or 'Register your Microsoft email' button.
Setting Your Password
After your email address is verified, you will be shown a form to set a password and a security question. We strongly recommend
you use a different password from your email account password. That way if your email
password is compromised, an attacker can't use the same password to access your encrypted messages.
The security question and answer are required to reset your Lockmagic account password in case you forget it.
If you are using an IPhone, IPad or mobile apps, you must register your email address with Lockmagic. We currently don't support login to Lockmagic from
IPhone, IPad or mobile apps using Google or Microsoft.
