Opening Your Safe

The initial screen allows you to select the safe to open. Local safes may be copied onto your device using iTunes on macOS. To use iCloud, you need to be logged onto iCloud and have iCloud Drive enabled for SamuraiSafe.
To minimise risk of unwanted disclosure, after a delay (default 1 minute), any data (such as a password) copied from the safe to the clipboard will be cleared from the clipboard. Under (Settings ) Clear Clipboard allows you to alter the delay or disable this feature.
After you have selected a safe to open you will be presented with a login screen. You need to enter the safe password to proceed. You also have two options that regulate automatic locking of the safe:
• after expiry of a time period (default 1 minute specified by Auto-Lock),
• when you switch to another app (default off specified by Lock on App Switch).
If you have iCloud safes, you may see the safe name appear in grey without the > symbol - this indicates that the safe is downloading from iCloud. The name will go black and > symbol will appear when it is ready to be opened. If the name is in red, the safe is in conflict, and you will need to decide which version(s) to keep.
Clicking Edit allows adding, renaming and deleting safes, and also moving safes from iCloud to/from the device. If you delete a safe, it is saved as a backup. so may be restored later if required.
