How Do I Find The Secret Code


Recommended Posts

Hi proudwvhilljack,


Secrets are stored in BTSync files. If you want to get a secret to share it - take a look at Sync'ed folders in BTSync properties, there are several ways to share them (copy to clipboard, copy a read-only part of a secret, display secret as QR code, etc.)


Sharing of a secret and security of it's delivery is up to you. You can mail it, type in manually, share thru instant messenger, scan with QR scanner, etc.

The Anderoid app is missing a method to show the secret for a folder. I recently had the use case where I got a new PC, installed BTSync and wanted to add my folders again and all I had left were the folders on my mobile phone (and the old PC was not usable anymore). There is no comfortable way to display/email the existing secrets from my mobile phone to my new PC.


The Android app should have menu items for each folder: "show secret", "copy secret to clipboard" and "send secret (mail, etc.)".
