2.1.1. Installation and initial setup of the KeyReel Password Vault on your iPhone

We recommend you enable Notifications to make KeyReel even easier to use. Remember to enable Bluetooth as well, or KeyReel will not work!

Choose the method of encryption for your Password Vault: Touch ID or PIN Code (you must set up a PIN code within the app).

Once the KeyReel Bluetooth Connector is installed and properly configured, start pairing during initial setup. Touch the Scan QR code button and follow the instructions on the chapter “How to pair”.
