    This is the switch on the top of your device
  3. Attach your screenshot to your ticket for the issue

  1. Open the CrashPlan mobile app
  2. Click the gear icon in the upper right
  3. Tap About this app
  4. Triple-tap Codefortytwo in the upper right
    A form opens
  5. Enter the ticket number for your issue
  6. Tap Send
