With this account, you can store your personal information and you can store, organize and share your pictures. You can also use our services. To create an account, you will need to provide your name and e-mail address. You will also need to create a password. Good passwords contain letters and numbers and are not obvious. You can change your password at any time by logging into your personal Evade account and clicking on the 'change password' button. If you have forgotten your password, simply navigate to the 'My Accounts' page, enter in your email address and submit your request by clicking the button. Your password will then be emailed to you shortly. If you need further assistance please contact our Customer Support Department at customercare@Evade.com.
