Default Lost password for password-safe

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
I unfortunatley can´t remember the password I set for the built in app password safe (I hope this is the english name or similar to it (in the german version it reads like 'kennwortverwaltung'). My usual passwords do not work and I tried it now down to 2 tries left :(

Do I have to discard my 8700g now??

I have no passwords stored there (at least not knowing about) - so I could live with a reset of this app.

Thanks
Thomas

If you don't have anything in there, use the Desktop Manager to remove the app and then re-install it.

If you type the password wrong for password keeper too many times it only wipes the password keeper, not the entire device.

Thanks. In the meanwhile I completed my 10 attempts and as you told it just cleared the password safe data and created a new, empty one with a new password choice.
