Empowering Technology Password

Before using Acer eLock Management and Acer eRecovery Management, you must initialize the Empowering Technology password. Right-click on the Empowering Technology tool bar and select Password Setup to do so. If you do not initialize the Empowering Technology password, you will be prompted to do so when running Acer eLock Management or Acer eRecovery Management for the first time.

Note: If you lose the password, there is no method to reset it except by reformatting your system or taking your notebook to an Acer Customer Service Center. Be sure to remember or write down your password.

Acer eDataSecurity Management is a handy file encryption utility that protects the files from being accessed by unauthorized persons. It is conveniently integrated with Windows Explorer as a shell extension for quick and easy data encryption and decryption and also supports on-the-fly file encryption for MSN Messenger and Microsoft Outlook.

There are two passwords that can be used to encrypt and decrypt a file: the supervisor password and the file-specific password. The supervisor password is a "master" password that can decrypt any file on the system. The file-specific password is assigned when you encrypt each individual file.

Acer eDataSecurity Management setup wizard will prompt for a supervisor password and default file-specific password. This file-specific password will be used to encrypt files by default, or you can choose to enter your own file-specific password when encrypting a file.

Note: The password used to encrypt a file is the unique key that the system needs to decrypt it. If you lose the password, the supervisor password is the only other key capable of decrypting the file. If you lose both passwords, there will be no way to decrypt the encrypted files! Be sure to safeguard all related password.
