Enter the wrong password 10 times and it will wipe the Password Keeper data (not the main device data) and reset to no password. All the stuff stored in Password Keeper is truly gone, but at least you can start using it again.

Nice. Okay thanks. Only had 2 passwords on it, but I know them and already wrote them down.

Your lucky most people have a lot on the list and would lose a lot.

Mitch, maybe it's time to invest in one of the password managers that backup encrypted files to your PC. SplashID is the one I've used across three different platforms for the past 8 or 9 years, but there are others that may suit your particular requirements better.
