Renewing a Certificate

Your certificate will need to be replaced when it expires. You will use the same process to replace the certificate as you did when you created the original certificate.

The new certificate will be generated and saved on your computer. Do not delete the old (expired) certificate. The old certificate is needed to decrypt any saved data that was encrypted with this certificate.
