First time running the app
After installing PROMinet, the first time you run it, you will be presented with a “set your unlockcode” and “registration” screen. The unlockcode operates as a simple security measure to prevent unintentional access to the app. Additionally, there is anonymous user registration.
This panel has two text boxes.
Enter a simple unlockcode into the upper text box and then the same unlockcode into the second, lower text box.
TIP: Use a memorable and simple code that is preferably short and easy to type.
