Backup and Sync

DirectPass uses your Trend Micro account to encrypt and back up everything that you have saved.

Select Automatically synchronize and back up my data so that you have an up-to-date copy of the same information everywhere you have installed DirectPass.

Switch off automatic syncing to use less bandwidth and reduce possible data costs.
