Where is my data?
All passwords are encrypted on your computer. Only you can access them.
Abine doesn't know who you are. We don't keep a big database of information on the internet. In fact, we couldn't do this if we wanted to.
Abine gives you the power to set up safe secure identity management on your computer. All the data stays there, and only you can access it.
Where are my passwords and other data stored?
The Abine software encrypts and stores all passwords and account data on your PC. It can only be seen by you with your master password. We do not store your data on our servers and cannot access them, by design. They are encrypted using industry standard 128 Bit AES encryption.
Windows: If you are a Windows user, all your data can be found in your application/data directory:
For example: C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Abine.
Note: on Windows 2000 and Windows XP, the "Document and Settings" directory is generally hidden; to access the directory, you may need to set Windows Explorer to show System and Hidden directories and files.
Macintosh: On Mac OS X, a typical profile location is: ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profile Name/Abine
Linux: On Linux, a typical profile location is: ~/.mozilla/firefox/Profile Name/Abine/
How do I back up my profile data?
Occasionally, your browser software or your computer system may malfunction and cause important profile data to be lost. Therefore we recommend that you make a backup copy of your Abine data periodically. Backup frequency will depend on your usage.
To save or open your Abine data, chose "Open/Save" from the Preferences tab when you open the Abine Settings. You can save your file to a portable drive or whatever means of backup you prefer.
Soon we'll have a features that takes care of this automatically and securely.
