To begin, launch SpiderOak Share and click the Sign Up button.
You will be prompted to enter your Team URL. All SpiderOak Share users install the same application regardless of whether the application is self-hosted or using SpiderOak’s back end. The Team URL ensures SpiderOak Share connects to the correct server. For more information, please see Team URLs in SpiderOak Share.
Copy your account key
On the next screen you will be prompted to copy and save your account key. This is essential and should not be skipped. The account key is used to generate the encryption keys necessary for SpiderOak Share to function. This key is also used when setting up additional devices.
If the account key is lost it is not possible to recover the account. The account key should be stored safely, ideally with a digital copy in a password manager and a physical copy printed out.
After recording your account key click Continue. On the next screen you will be prompted to enter the key as a confirmation. If you did not record the account key you can use the Go Back link to return to the Save Your Key screen.
After entering the account key, click the Sign Up button to complete the process.
