Adding Accounts Manually

You have the option to add accounts to the repository manually. Accounts associated with domain joined computers, servers, accounts, service accounts, organizational units (OUs), and groups, can be automatically discovered and added. Other accounts such as website accounts, files, etc. that cannot be discovered automatically can be added manually and managed with Securden.

To add an account manually, navigate to Accounts >> Add >> Add Accounts Manually

Adding Account Manually

Work Accounts

Your official accounts used for work can be added as work accounts. This account can be shared with other people in your organization.

Personal Accounts

Personal accounts are your own accounts. Personal accounts can be health care accounts, email accounts, bank accounts, social security numbers etc.


  1. The primary differentiating factor between a work account and a personal account is that a personal account cannot be shared with another user in the organization.
  2. Personal Accounts cannot be viewed by any other user. Even the most privileged role like the Super Administrator would not have the ability to view personal accounts belonging to individual users.
  3. You may disable users from creating and storing personal accounts. Navigate to Admin >> Configurations to configure this option.

Adding Accounts Manually

To add an account, select the type of account i.e., Work or Personal, and enter the required information:
