    Hi there,

    I forgot my main password for Password Keeper. Is there any way to retrieve it? Thanks

    Sure!

    Just enter the incorrect password 10 times and it will erase all the things inside the protected folder ONLY and then allow you to start off fresh with a new password...

    This is the most ironic thread ever lol

    I'm sorry, I couldn't help it.

    But Trem is correct.

    Ironic indeed! :-) But the good news is that it just wipes Password Keeper, not the whole device as would be the case if you forgot the password to the device or the Key Content Store!

    I know this is an old topic but I was wondering if you lost your password keeper password and entered it wrong 10 times and had all the pk data erased, would restoring from a previous backup give you 10 more tries to enter correctly?

    That's a very good question. Intuitively it seems that it should. I hope someone will post an answer. If no one does, I'll install Password Keeper on my phone and try it. Since I don't use the app, there's no risk in trying it.

    jeffh on 04-30-2010 posted replied that he intended installing Password Keeper try entering incorrect password 10 times then reinstalling from backup to see if all password data was reloaded.
    Any outcome on this - just wanting to check all areas before I purchase a Z10

    I'm sorry, I never got around to trying it, and I still don't use Password Keeper. I use and recommend Lastpass, https://lastpass.com/

    I know this is an ancient thread, but restoring a backup on Android of the apk+data resets the tries. Major security hole.

    You can restore a backup of Password Keeper on Android? How? I'm in this scenario. Can't believe my password is not working. I'm on tries.

    Thanks. I am not sure how recent the backup is but I have one.

    I restored the Passport backup from two days ago onto my Z30 today. (I updated the Z30 to 10.3.3 first.) Password Keeper doesn't have any data in it though so the process was not productive.

    Could the problem be the type of backup that I ran? I ran the quick back up, but that should not have mattered I don't think.

    I was able to import the passwords off of my last phone. This mitigates the damage quite a bit. I will not have to reconstruct nearly as much.

    Still, I am interested why this did not work if you or anyone knows. Does PW Keeper not repopulate its data if you install a backup .bbb file that is a quick back up versus full back up? Thanks.
