Help! I Lost My Chameleon!

Recover and protect your data even if you lose your Chameleon.

You can create a duplicate Chameleon without the original Chameleon present.

With the new Chameleon plugged in, open the Chameleon Manager located under Start > All Programs > Chameleon > Chameleon Manager.


b) Duplicate Key

Create a duplicate Chameleon by entering the recover passphrase you specified when setting up the original Chameleon.


2) Lock Out the Old Chameleon
