    key store password

    Advertisement



    Hi guys!
    What is a key store password and how to find it?
    I was asked for it several times and used 7/10 chances.

    BTW, what will happen if I hit 10/10?

    Thanks!

    if you set that on your device that means you have set up a security password for your device. so you would have to enter that in to get back into your device. not if you go through all 10 attempts it usually locks you out of your device all together. You don't want that to happen

    thanks for your response. The weird thing is that I don't remember setting up any passwords like that. Is it possible that it was set automatically?

    If you haven't set any passwords enter "blackberry".

    Re: key store password

    The key store password is setup through the desktop manager when you first connect your BB to your computer. It asks you if you want to put one on the comp but the way it asks it looks like it is requiring one when actually it isn't required. I don't know what will happen if you hit the 10/10 since it is on the comp not the BB.

    Thanks! I don't remember setting one up but it might be my fault. I also spent over 2 hours with Customer Service and they didn't even know what kind of password is that or what will happen if I reach 10/10.
    Thankfully, I'm within 30 days window and I won't take my chances for a locked phone. I will ask for a replacement tomorrow.
    Thanks guys!

    Update:
    Key store password is deleted when you wipe your device from phone's security options.
