4. Vault Password

When you use Shift's built-in password manager, a secure, unique code gets generated for you automatically, allowing you to decrypt and access your password data across different computers! Make sure to save a copy of your Emergency Kit, the document that contains this password, and your account info somewhere safe. Go to Options (lower left) > Settings > Passwords > Options (upper right) > click "View" next to Emergency Kit. Read more about your Vault Password here.


5. Auto-Hibernate

This setting helps keep Shift's impact on your computer's resources low. You can always turn it off for a faster experience! Read more about Auto-Hibernate here.
