The storage device can only be unlocked when it is safely housed within Lyve Drive Shuttle and will not work if it is removed.

Create a password

Lyve Drive Shuttle can only be unlocked by the device password. During the initial setup, you are prompted to create a password. A minimum of 6 characters are required.

Some tips for creating a strong password:

  • Combine numbers, special characters, and upper and lower case letters.
  • Use more than the minimum 6 characters.
  • Avoid predictable number sequences such as 123456.
  • Avoid predictable keyboard sequences such as QWERTY.
  • Avoid repeated characters such as 111111 or AAAAAA.
 Create a password that is easy to remember, and store it in a safe place. Similar to mobile phones, your password cannot be recovered, not even by Seagate.
