SplashID 8 account after the migration
The SplashID 8 account of yours will remain independent of SplashID Pro 9, and you can continue using it. This will allow you to transition to SplashID Pro 9, and discontinue using SplashID 8 once you start using SplashID Pro 9 regularly.

Data migration from SplashID 8
Cloud sync accounts in SplashID 8 will have their data copied over to SplashID Pro 9 during the migration.
First time migration
If you have a large number of records, then after the migration is complete, the application will start sending the migrated data using cloud sync. This happens in the background and will take some time depending on how much information you have.
After some time, you can log in to your account on another device and wait for the first time sync to complete in the background.
If the data appears to be out of sync, then first manually start sync on the device that you had completed the migration initially, by clicking or tapping on the Cloud Sync button. This button is shown at the top of the record list panel. After the sync completes successfully, initiate manual sync similarly on your other devices.
The manual sync procedure might be needed to be performed multiple times to ensure that all your content gets synced across all your devices.
WiFi and No sync
WiFi sync and No sync users will need to export their data to a SVID file in SplashID 8, and then import the SVID file in SplashID Pro 9.
No syncing between SplashID 8 and SplashID Pro 9 after the migration

License migration from SplashID 8
Your license will get migrated to SplashID Pro 9, if you had purchased one from us directly.
If you had purchased a SplashID Pro yearly or monthly subscription from the App Store or the Play Store, then your license will not be migrated. This is due to restrictions on license transfers across products in the App Store or the Play Store.

Your SplashID 8 account will remain as a Pro license account till the SplashID 8 service is stopped in the future. So do ensure that you start using SplashID Pro 9 once you are comfortable with it, and move away from SplashID 8.
App Store and Play Store licenses
The SplashID 8 app is commonly referred to as SplashID Safe in the stores.
Apple and Google limit our ability to transfer existing subscription purchases from one application to another application. Due to this restriction, it is not possible to automate the transfer of the SplashID 8 subscription purchased from the App Store or the Play Store to SplashID Pro 9.
You will have to do the following to migrate over to SplashID Pro 9 and setup a new purchase.
- Initiate the migration and transfer over your data to SplashID Pro 9.
- Proceed to the subscription screen and purchase a license that suits you.
- Once your SplashID Pro 9 account is set up with your data and license, you will need to manually stop the subscription for the SplashID 8 app in the App Store or the Play Store.
If you migrate to SplashID Pro 9, and do not cancel your SplashID 8 subscription you will continue getting billed for SplashID 8 subscriptions that you do not use. Please note that the responsibility for cancelling your SplashID 8 license in the App Store or Play Store rests with you. We will not be in any position to refund any amounts from the App Store or Play Store if you continue subscribing to the SplashID 8 licenses.

Go back to the SplashID Pro 9 application, and go to Settings, then Import & Export. Click on the Import button in the SVID section and select the SVID file exported in step 3 above for import.

What do I do if my import fails?
You can retry the import after quitting the SplashID Pro 9 application and launching it again.
If it still fails, check the size of the SVID file. It should not be zero bytes.
If the SVID file appears to have content, then please check your SplashID Safe account to see if there is corrupted data or any missing types or categories in the records. If you spot them, try cleaning up the records and then export the SVID file again. Try importing this cleaned up SVID file again in SplashID Pro 9.
