<p><b>Note:</b> The Password Policy Tab has been superceded by the following menu item to manage
the database default policy and named password policies.</p>
<hr style="width: 100%; height: 2px;"><b>Note:</b><br>
<small>Many of the setting are stored as <i>preferences</i>, as
described <a href="preferences.html">here</a>.</small>
<hr>

other application. You may select the database default password policy, a named password
policy or use a specific policy you enter into dialog.</p>
<h3><a name="#yubikey"></a>Yubikey</h3>
<p>This allows you to customize your YubiKey so that you can use it to
access your <b>Password Safe</b> database, as well as creating a
backup YubiKey in case the original get lost or damaged.</p>
<img alt="YubiKey Configuration" src="images/yubi_config.jpg">
<h4>To customize your YubiKey</h4>
<ol>
<li>Insert your YubiKey into your PC's USB slot
</li><li>Select the Manage-&gt;Yubikey... menu item. The YubiKey
Configuration dialog box will appear.
</li><li>Your YubiKey's Serial Number should be displayed. If this field
is blank, make sure your YubiKey is plugged in correctly.
</li><li>Click on the Generate button. This will create a 20 byte random
secret key that will be written to your YubiKey, and used to access
your database.
</li><li>Click on Set Yubikey. This will write the generated key to your YubiKey, and
save the data in encrypted form in your <b>Password Safe</b>
database, so that you can use it to configure a backup key.
</li><li> If the configuration is successful, then the dialog box will
close. If not, then an error message will appear describing the problem.
</li>
<li>Click on Close to exit the dialog box.</li>
</ol>
<b>Note:</b> After configuring your YubiKey, you must change the
database's password to use the YubiKey for authentication as described
in <a href="change_combo.html">Changing Master Passwords</a>
<h4>To create a backup YubiKey</h4>
<ol>
<li>Insert your backup YubiKey into your PC's USB slot
</li><li>Select the Manage-&gt;Yubikey... menu item. The YubiKey
Configuration dialog box will appear.
</li><li>Your backup YubiKey's Serial Number should be displayed. If this field
is blank, make sure your YubiKey is plugged in correctly.
</li><li><b>Do not</b> click on the Generate button. The data displayed
in the "YubiKey Secret Key" field is the key associated with this
database. This is the key that will be written to your backup YubiKey.
</li><li>Click on Set Yubikey. This will write the generated key to your backup YubiKey.
</li><li> If the configuration is successful, then the dialog box will
close. If not, then an error message will appear describing the problem.

</ol>
<h3>Change Language</h3>
<img alt="Change Language" src="images/change_language.jpg">
<p>If you have installed all the currently available additional language DLLs when
<b>Password Safe</b> was installed (which is the default), you will have the ability
to switch between these languages on-the-fly via this menu item.</p>
<p>After changing the language, all menus, dialogs and messages will now be in your chosen
language.</p>
