The Document Vault is a very powerful tool that enables you to encrypt and decrypt your personal documents with a single click. You can store virtually any files or folders on your PC within the Vault, and they will be encrypted and invisible to anyone but you.

How to scan your documents

  • Select Scan to search for documents on your computer that may contain personal information and are stored in the more common folders, such as ‘My Documents’, ‘Desktop’ etc’.
  • Select ‘Deep Scan’ for a full computer scan. Please note – the deep scan may take a while as it goes through all of your computer files in search of such sensitive information containing documents.

Understanding the scan results

Upon completion of the documents scan, you will see a list of found documents, each document type, and the detection type.
Per each document, you can either ignore it or move it to the documents vault.

  • Ignore: The ignore option will leave the documents in their current locations and skip it in the next document scan.
  • Move to Vault: moving a document to the vault will both encrypt the document with a high level file encryption algorithm as well as remove it from its original location. Unless removed from the vault, these documents can now only be accessed through the vault.
