Hi,

 

I'm trying to import my contacts (which are in .vcf format) to Address Book but I get the error message 'no importable cards found'. When I open up the vCard with Text Edit I get what looks like ecyrpted content - I've added an example below.

 

Can anyone help? I'm a little worried I may have lost ALL of my business contacts!

 

Thanks,

Claire

    So what's with this SafeGuard encryption? Do you have it installed now?

     

    A .vcf file should look like regular text?

    Very likely it is installed on the company laptop, likely used for security purposes, & sadly, you're lost without it, & not sure if you can get that app, or if it'd even be useful without the original setup.
