A new window should pop up. On this window insert your login information and click the “Authorization” button. Now insert your new email and/or password and click the “Save” button. You should receive a message that the account details were saved.

On this new window click the “Register” link. Now fill up the information. Click the “Register” button. You should receive a message that the account was created successfully.
Now you should receive an email with account information and validation code (or an admin will receive it if you are a user).
As an admin you should send an email to your user with the validation code. As a user you should expect such a validation code from the admin to finish the registration.
You have 2 weeks to complete the registration process. After this time your account will be permanently deleted and you will have to create a new one.
If you forgot the password, click the “Forgot your account details?” link on the login window. A new window should pop up.
On this new window insert your email and click the “Confirm” button.
You should receive a message to check your mailbox. Check your email and look for email with title “bluNFC Reset password”. Inside you should see your reset key. Copy it.

You will be able to change your email and password (or just password if you are the user). Set the new password and click the “Save” button. You should receive a message that the account details were saved.
