Security And Privacy
Privacy and security of your data are very important to us. All the information about your accounts will be stored securely in the keychain of your account on your Mac. You can access your keychain with the Keychain Access application by Apple. However, you can’t look into the data by yourself (but no one else can either ;-) )
You can find the stored account data in the keychain with the following steps:
1. Search and open the Keychain Access app by Apple with Spotlight in the upper right corner of your screen. The Keychain Access app will launch and present a window with all stored items.
2. Search for “com.boinx” in the upper right corner of the Keychain Access window. The list of items will be filtered but only the “com.boinx.bxkeychainstore” item should remain. This item will hold all account data known to mimoLive. Unfortunately, you can’t look inside that item.
3. If you feel the need to remove the account data from your system you can select the com.boinx.bxkeychainstore row and delete it.
