Getting Started Wizard:
* Tap a circle to select an item.
* Tap again to add more.
* A 4th tap clears the selection.
* Tap Add to add selected items to the Unfiled Items group.
* Details such as item titles & web sites are filled in to get you started.

Unfiled Items Group:
* Incomplete items are stored here by the Getting Started Wizard.
* The red badge number on the folder icon indicates the number of items in this group.
* When you edit each of these items to complete them, remember to also assign them to another group such as Personal or Financial.

Switching Among Groups:
* Slide the group drawer down/up to open/close the group list.
* The number on the folder icon indicates the number of items in that group.
* Tap any unlocked folder to display the items in that group.

Adding Items:
* Tap the green + button to add items to an active open group.
* Choose any of the pre-defined item types (called "templates") such as Web Login or Bank Account.
* Fill in the fields and hit Save.

Auto-Generating Passwords:
* Tap the generate password icon in a Password field to create a new password.
* Set the password length using the slider.
* Use the ON/OFF switches to set which characters the password requires.
* Tap the generate password icon to create a password matching your settings.
* Tap Apply to set the password.
* Longer passwords that include a mixture of special characters and numbers are much more secure than short words and common names.
* Use the Auto-Generate Password feature to create strong passwords to protect your accounts.

Sort:
* Items in an active, open group are sorted in one of three ways:
   Name: alphabetical by Item Title,
   Date: most recent entries first, or
   Type: grouped by item type (such as Web Login or Email Account).
* Tap any of the sort buttons at the bottom of an item list to sort.
* Tap the triangle button to expand/collapse sorted items.

Search:
* Enter search criteria in the search field at the top of any list view to search for items.
* You can choose to search the current group or all open groups.
* Locked Groups will be excluded from the search unless they are currently unlocked.

Templates:
* You can edit, duplicate, or create new templates from the Settings Menu.
* Changes made to any template—field names, new or deleted fields, field order, field type—will affect all items of that type.

Special Templates:
* Several default templates are used in the Getting Started Wizard.
These can be edited, but not deleted or renamed. They include:
   * Bank Account
   * Credit Card
   * Driver's License
   * Email Account
   * Frequent Flyer
   * Web Login

Locked Groups:
* For extra security you can password lock individual groups such as those containing financial or client data. To create a locked group:
   1) Tap the Edit button when the group drawer is open.
   2) Tap the group name you wish to lock.
   3) Slide the Locked Group switch to On.
   4) Enter and confirm a group password.
   NOTE: Be sure to remember the passwords for locked groups because they cannot be recovered.

Security Settings:
* Idle Timeout Length: the amount of idle time before AllSafe times out, secures all your data, and clears the clipboard.
* Password Attempts Allowed: the number of failed password attempts before AllSafe prevents further login attempts.
* Lockout Duration: the amount of time one is locked out after exceeding the setting for failed password attempts.

Email Backup:
* It is important to keep a backup copy of your AllSafe data in case you replace or lose your device.
* You can email a secure, encrypted copy of the database to yourself from the Settings menu.
* You can restore your AllSafe database from a backup copy by clicking on the email attachment. (AllSafe must be installed on the device.)
   NOTE: Be sure to remember the master password in use when you create a backup, because you will need it to restore the database.

Dropbox Backup:
* You can upload an encrypted backup of your AllSafe data to Dropbox.
* You can import your data to other iOS devices.
* You can set AllSafe to upload a backup to Dropbox automatically.
* AllSafe can only upload to Dropbox while AllSafe is running.
* AllSafe only has access to its own folder in Dropbox. The path to the AllSafe folder is: \Apps\AllSafe.
   NOTE: Be sure to remember the master password in use when you create a backup, because you will need it to restore the database.
