When you open the form or archive for the first time you will be challenged for a login. Enter your email address and a password unique to CloudRF here (NOT your email password) then click 'Register', ensuring the 'Server' field remains at 'https://m.cloudrf.com'. A request will then be made to the server which will email you immediately.
Check your spam folder if you don't see the email within a minute. In the email is an activation link which you must follow. If successful, you will be told your account is registered after which point you can press 'Login' on the app. This is one time only.
If you make a mistake or want to register under a new email (limits apply), open your menu and click 'reset' then 'clear settings'. This will flush your identity.
Once activated your account can be used on the cloudrf.com website immediately. Here you can change both your username and request password resets.
If you have an account on your Keyhole Radio server or at CloudRF.com, enter either your username (eg. user1234) OR your email (eg. firstname.lastname@example.org) and your password.
Next ensure the 'Server' field is set to the IP address of your server eg. http://10.0.0.3 then click login.
