An essential part of the CodeMeter system is the security. This includes not only the programs that are using CodeMeter but also your security in case of loss or theft of your CmStick. Therefore you have to enter a correct password while executing some functions. In the following is described what passwords are existing and how to handle them.
In general there are two passwords for each CmStick, the "CmStick Password" and the "CmStick Master-Password".
Please register your CmStick on my.codemeter.com and request the Master-Password for your CmStick (specify the serial number) via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive the CmStick Master-Password after your data was checked via e-mail to your registered e-mail address. Please allow us some time, since the check is done manually.
The CmStick Password can be changed anytime. Open the CodeMeter Control Center. On the page "Hardware" you can use the button "Change Password" to open the dialog for changing the CmStick Password.
If you don't remember the current CmStick Password, you can insert the CmStick Master-Password instead.
