During registration every user receives a unique WM-ID and a secret key to access their electronic money. Your ID and money in purses can only be controlled by means of your secret key, therefore you should keep it in a safe place.
In order to register with the system you will have to choose between the two WM Keeper clients: Classic and Light. You can find a detailed description of both in the corresponding sections of the site and study their technical and functional features. The following table of their basic distinctions will help you make up your mind as to which of the two to use.
