WHAT CAN I DO HERE?

NOTE: This help page applies to both LifeTopix (and other classic LightArrow apps) as well as to LightArrow Organizer for iOS and Mac. So, the screenshots and directions may vary slightly based on the app you’re using.

In your LightArrow app, the Secure Your Data view allows you to set a passcode lock for your app, which provides extra security. In addition, some areas of the app that contain sensitive information require a PIN to see it. For example, if you plan to enter bank and credit card account number information in your LightArrow app, you should make sure that you specify a PIN in this view. In addition, if you set up lockers in the Bookmarks + Lockers topic, it’s required that you set up a PIN.

AES 256-BIT ENCRYPTION

Military Grade 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption is included for sensitive data fields. This applies to PINs and account numbers in bank account detail, as well as for storing the password lock and secret question answers.

REVEALING PRIVATE DATA

In your LightArrow app, by default, the entire number for each financial account is not displayed. But on each view that contains that information, a lock is shown to allow you to reveal your private data. When you tap the lock icon, you are prompted to enter your PIN. In the Bookmarks + Lockers topic, the app will ask you to enter a PIN to reveal private data. Refer to Bookmarks + Lockers to learn more about lockers.
