Embird allows you to easily back-up all inserted passwords into a “PASSWORD” file stored either on your computer’s hard drive, or an external drive. We strongly recommend that you back-up your passwords regularly to avoid problems caused by re-installation, hard disk failure, or virus attack. If you have a back-up copy of your passwords it’s very easy to insert them back into Embird should you need to reinstall the program for any reason.
