Please Login to Remove!

Good afternoon.
I am trying to downlaod Facebook for BB.
I completed dowlnoad and am trying to update my settings, but BB is asking for Handheld Keystore Password.
Am I supposed to know what this is?
Is it something I set up previously?

It might want to store your login information in the BB keystore.. is it asking you to create a master password or enter an exisiting password?

This will most likely be used for digital certificates, if you install the certificate sync part of the Desktop Manager you are prompted for it everytime you plug in.

I do think FaceBook has a digital certificate not too sure on the exact one. Options -> Security Options -> Certificates, will list all the digital certificates on your BlackBerry you might have a face entry in there.

Digital Certificates are just used to verify web sites are who you think they are and are not fake sites.
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
