Adding accounts for websites & apps. Generating OTPs
Hideez Key — Adding accounts for websites & apps. Generating OTPs
Click the "+" sign at the bottom of the page to create an account.
OR use a shortcut Ctrl + Alt + A to open a window for adding an account from an application or site. In this case, the account name and application / site fields will be pre-populated and can be edited.
Enter your account details in the window that appears:
- Account name - any name that is convenient and understandable for you
- Login - the login used to get into the account
- Password - the password used to get into the account. You can enter it manually or generate it by clicking the icon at the end of the line. If you generate a password, be sure to update it on your existing account.
- Web-site / app - The addresses of the websites where this account can be used and the names of the applications. Click the Add Web-site button to add a website address and the button Add application to choose a application name.
Use the drop-down list to select one of the addresses you used previously, or <Enter Url> to enter a new one. After entering the address, press 'Enter' or the
icon to save it, or
to delete it.
You can add an unlimited number of website addresses to a single account. You can delete or edit them by hovering over the address line and clicking the corresponding icon.
OTP Secret - you can paste the secret key, on the basis of which one-time passwords are generated here. Typically, such a key is displayed as a QR code on the computer screen and is intended to be scanned by the application on the phone. For example, this is how you set up OTPs for a Google account:
You can press the button in Hideez Client to scan the QR code automatically. In this case, the QR code should be visible on the screen when the Hideez Client application is minimized.
You can also add the secret manually. In this case, you will need to click on the link "CAN'T SCAN IT?". A window will open in which the same code will be presented in text form:
Copy this text and paste it into the OTP field in the Hideez Client application.
Click the Add application button to add an application
and select one from the list of applications running on your computer. If the application is not listed, it must be launched. Follow the same procedure to add the next application.
The process of removing and editing applications is the same as for websites.
