How to Create a Google Account on an IDVisor Smart, Smart V2, and Smart Plus

Creating a Google Account on an IDVisor Smart, Smart V2, and Smart Plus

A Google account will be needed on the device if you would like to use features such as wireless exporting sending extracted customer data via gmail, and/or if you would like to set up Google’s Find My Device feature on a Smart device in case it becomes lost or stolen. We DO NOT  recommend using a personal or business Google account on your IDVisor Smart device for security reasons. We recommend creating a Google Account specifically for your Smart device.

Note: Write down and save the google account address or password used on your ID Scanner, especially for the find my device feature.  The device may be permanently locked if the google account or pin code is lost. If you hire an IT firm to set this up, make sure they share this information.
