The Secure PWD QR recovery code is a secure way for you to recover or reset your Secure PWD master password. It is strongly encrypted and can only be decrypted on one of your synced devices.
For your security, a QR recovery code is the only way for you to retrieve your master password in case you forget it. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you create a Secure PWD QR recovery code as soon as you install Secure PWD.
Because the QR recovery code is so important, a message will appear each time you log in to Secure PWD until you create the code. Once it’s created, you can save the code as an image and store it in a safe, secure place—not in the same location as your device.
- If you sync new devices, Secure PWD may ask you to create a new QR recovery code. If this happens, make sure you create a new QR recovery code, as the older QR recovery code will not work anymore.
- Every time you change your master password, the Secure PWD app asks you to create a new QR recovery code. Be sure to safely store your latest code.

Note: We recommend that you save the code as an image and print the file out for safekeeping, rather than storing the file on your computer. To recover the code, you can then use your mobile device to scan the image.
