    Overview

    Now that you have installed CrashPlan on your computer, you're ready to create an account. Creating an account allows you to start backing up and inviting others to back up to you. To get started, just open the CrashPlan app and enter your basic information in the Create Your Account window.

    Tips For Creating A Secure Password

    • Choose a password that is easy to remember, because you will need to supply the password to manage your CrashPlan account or to change your password.
    • Your password should be at least six characters long and contain at least two numbers or symbols.
    • Don’t use names, words, dates, or your ATM PIN.

    Less Secure Passwords:
