Once you create an account at, simply assign a product user to your project. If that’s you, use your product user credentials to assign yourself to the project. The assigned user will then receive an email invitation to the Lyve Management Portal and a link to download Lyve Client software, which is required to unlock devices. The product user provisioning (through KMS) authorizes the username and password associated with the project and the device specified. Once Client is downloaded, product users can log into the device through Client and the device will be automatically detected and appear on the dashboard.

Data security is always top of mind for us. That’s why Lyve Mobile shuttles include self-encrypting drives (SEDs) for data encryption as well as government-grade crypto erase for completed projects.
