Initial setup

When you start up the Halo Platform Client for the first time you are walked through setup steps. The first step is about setting up a master password. Keep this password secure because it protects all your accounts. If you forget your master password there is no way to access your accounts again!

After setting up master password you can either create a new account or import previously exported or ICO account.

An exported account is a Halo Platform Client-compatible JSON file that you get when you export an account from Halo Platform Client or the ICO Platform.

If you choose to import a Featherlite or ICO Account you will be prompted to load the account file from your system. You will then have to unlock it with the password it was set up with (note: this is not the same as your Featherlite Master Password)
