Many Androids are different and downloaded files can be found in Downloads, Notifications, or other locations.

Your key# will be sent to you by email.


Copy your key# from the installation email you received to have it available for pasting from the clipboard.

OK, let's get started:

1)  Go to Settings > Security in your device and select Unknown Sources.

This is powerful, commercial-grade IT security technology and will take from 5-25 minutes to complete.  

Please take your time, be deliberate, and use patience between steps as the software downloads, installs, and configures itself on your Android device.  

Do not interrupt the process.  The process will take longer if your WiFi signal is weak, or device is old.

We will keep you informed of any observations or issues, as needed.

Thank you.
