Before using Keyavi to protect files, you'll sign into Keyavi Desktop using an organization code that registers your device. After your organization's IT administrator adds you to the system, you'll receive the organization code and instructions for signing in for the first time.
When you sign in for the first time, you'll add a default profile, which is the profile Keyavi signs into automatically. After that, you can add more profiles and change which profile is your default. You'll also be registering your computer so that you can use the application.

You won’t be able to rename a profile once it’s added. You’ll need to delete it and add it again using the organization code for that profile.

Click Save. The profile is automatically set as your default profile. When you have multiple profiles, you'll be able to specify which profile you want as the default.
Click Yes when prompted to register your computer.
