What is invalid key

when i enter information such a phone number or password it says invalid key.
please help.
thank you.

Hi @lost, my apologies for the delayed response here! Thanks for posting to the forum, though I’m sorry about the problem you are seeing.

Is this inquiry about a license key for the SQLCipher library? Or is it about the Sync Key used by our password manager Codebook?

Thank you for your response.
I included a photo to show you what I mean.
Thank you for your help

Hi @lost, no problem!

So, “Invalid Key” is what Codebook will display for a Field’s value if the Label is set to 2-Step Key (TOTP). In other words, it treats the value stored in the Field as a key to be used for generating a numerical code, something like 060339. But it looks like you want this to be a Password field, judging by the label name, Pw, is that correct?

To change this behavior:

  • Sign into Codebook on your Mac
  • Go to the File menu and choose “Customize Labels…”
  • Look for the Label named Pw in the table
  • Set the Mode for that Label to Password

Please let us know if that does the trick and if you have any more questions.

Thank you for your help. I will try later on and get back to you.
