  • Returning to the My Account Page, Under My Gabriel Devices you will see a list of your online devices that are running Gabriel. This may include desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. There is also an option at the bottom of the page to show your offline devices as well that you can access by clicking Show Offline.
  • Click more to view that device’s details including, the device type, whether the device is mail or file server capable, whether or not the device is hidden, the device’s status, and whether any secure gateway services are enabled for that device.

  • You may also elect to Delete Device. This would be the equivalent of logging out of your account on that device.
  • Important note: Mobile devices cannot act as your server. Your ‘server’ is a device you should choose to use as a private server for routing Secure Mail and Secure Messaging. It is also the default device for sharing and syncing files. For best results, it should be a computer that is always on with an internet connection. A premium account is required to activate your server.
  • Access your accounts Settings by clicking the grey cog on your My Account Page.

  • In Settings you will see four options. User Preferences, Manage Devices, Security & Privacy, and About Gabriel.

  • User Preferences allows you to customize Gabriel to your wants and needs with Notification Options, Conversation History, Edit Account Details, Pressing ENTER key sends messages, and Display/Font Size.

  • Notification Options: Enable or disable notifications for new secure messages and new secure mail.
  • Conversation History: Save conversations, auto delete messages, and erase all history.
  • Edit Account Details: The Accounts Details link will take you to the https://www.myvirnetx.com website where you can change your password, manage devices, and see account status.

  • Pressing ENTER key sends messages: When disabled, the ENTER key will add a new line, instead of sending the message.
  • Display / Font size: alter the size of the display and font.
  • Manage Device: By clicking on “Manage Devices” you will be able to choose which device you want to act as your own personal server.
  • Security & Privacy: designate who can find you when searching the directory or create a New Security Policy.

  • Select who will be able to search you in the Gabriel directory. All Users, My domain only, or Unlisted.

  • Create a Security Policy to limit ways in which peers can interact with you through Gabriel. They allow you to fine tune access to your secure applications. These policies apply to all of your devices activated on your account.

  • Name your Security Policy and click Next.

  • Put a Check in the Allow column for each application you want policy members to have access to.

  • By deselecting an application you effectively block all chosen policy members from using that application with you within Gabriel.
  • To add members to your new security policy click Add Members in one of two places.
  • Click Save when finished selecting peers for this policy.

 

  • About Gabriel shows you the software version you are currently using, copyright information, patent info, and allows you to check for any software updates.
