    2. If this is your first time running Identity Finder, you will be prompted to set a password for your Identity Finder profile. This password is the same one you will use every time you run Identity Finder. It also protects access to any passwords or files you decide to store in the Password Vault, so it should be a strong password that you can remember. If you forget your password, THERE IS NO WAY FOR SUPPORT TO RECOVER THIS PASSWORD. If you have already set a password simply enter your password and click "OK".

      Your Identity Finder Profile Password must be at least eight characters and contain at least three of the following four types of characters: 
        • Lowercase letters
        • Uppercase letters
        • Numbers
        • Symbols (i.e., !@#$%^&*:,./ etc.)
