You can access your password data from any computer by entering your Vault Password stored in your Emergency Kit. Use this Vault Password to access your Vault on another computer. For this to work, you must enable the Backup & Sync Passwords setting in Shift. This setting allows your encrypted password data to be synced with Shift's servers. When you log into Shift on another computer, you can access your password data by decrypting it from Shift's servers using your Vault Password.


Enable the Backup & Sync Passwords setting

  1. Go to Options (lower left corner) > Settings > Passwords > Options

  2. Toggle Backup & Sync Passwords ON

The Backup and Sync Passwords setting is turned on by default. It is recommended that this setting remains on, or you toggle it on to ensure that your passwords are not lost if you reset your application data in Shift. 


Upon entering your Vault Password, your password data will be decrypted and accessed on the device. Access them by navigating to Options > Settings > Passwords > Your Passwords.
