There are two methods of installing the SecureCircle client. One method will be from either a downloaded or pushed Directory Device installer in which no invitation or email is necessary. Circle access from the Directory Device install is determined by your Active Directory groups. This method also does not require any confirmation, and you can begin using your Circles immediately.
The other method of installation involves having a Circle administrator invite you to join a Circle. Once you receive an invite like the image below via email, you can click the link to install the SecureCircle client.
After clicking the “Install and Join SecureCircle”, a download page will appear with information on the Circle you have been invited to join. A download should start automatically and depending on your browser settings it may ask you if you want to open or save the file. You can do it either way, though depending on your permissions to install software on your machine, you may need an adult administrator to assist in installation. The download and install process is the same regardless of the user role and permissions.
Once the installation process is complete, you will receive an email that contains the hostname of the device, along with basic information around what type of device it is. After confirming that this information is correct, select the confirmation link and your device will be joined to the Circle.
- Alternatively, the SecureCircle Server administrator can “Confirm the Device” registration in the Devices section of the server management.
Once you have completed the installation and confirmed your device, you will be able to open and use any files that have been added to the Circle, as long as you have the correct permissions. Additionally, if your User Role allows, you will be able to protect (and/or unprotect) data using the SecureCircle Agent.
