  • "I still don't know what to do with this information and I want another clue."
    It looks like Laura uses OUR Messenger a lot. To access it, she has to go through SecuryChest, which means she probably uses its password. Alex also said he personally uses the alarm code of the restaurant he is working at. This might have inspired Laura when she had to choose a password.

  • "I still don't know what to do with this information and I want another clue."
    The first part of the password is the SecuryChest password. The second part is the digicode of the place Laura lives in. You only need to find this digicode now.

  • "I still don't know what to do with this information and I want another clue."
    By reading the SMS conversation with Ben and the conversation with Carmen on OUR Messenger, it’s possible to work out that Laura moved to Ben’s place. He gave her his digicode at the beginning of their relationship.

  • "I still don't know what to do with this information and I want another clue."

Quick answer with the solution
In SecuryChest, you have to open the CloudSave application, then click on the "Laura B." account. The password is 21214004. You then need to synchronize the Notes application and the SMS application to access the content saved by Laura.
Part 7: Finish the game
  • "I don’t know what to do now."
    After synchronizing the content from CloudSave, you are now able to read the saved content from Laura's professional phone. To do that, go the the SMS application and read the new conversation with Amir and check the new messages in Charlotte's conversation. Then, you can read the two new notes in the Notes app.

  • "I just did that, but I don't know what to do now."
    Once both notes are opened and both conversations have been read, going back to the main screen should trigger an e-mail from Laura.


  • "I just did that, but I received no email."
    The e-mail is only sent once you have carefully read the SMS conversation with Charlotte, the SMS conversation with Amir and the two notes about domestic violence. Then, you have to go back to the main screen or home screen. Make sure you completed all of these steps.

  • "OkI did receive the emailbut I still don't know what to do"
    Laura is asking you to send a notification to Ben through the I-Am-Here app. You need the secret code she sent you in the attachment to unlock the GPS in the settings. Then, go to the I-Am-Here app and send the notification. You can also choose not to do it and instead erase the phone's data. You can do this in the settings. Be careful, erasing the phone's data will take you to the epilog only if you have received Laura's e-mail; in any other case, it will just restart the game.


  • "I don’t know what to do now."
    This is the epilog. You can see the messages from Laura to her close ones after she left. To go from one screen to another, use the buttons at the bottom of the screen.You can go forward or back, and the last screen allows you to see the full credits

Thank you for the hints - I don't own it on Steam - Amazon Games gave it away tp Prime gamers at some point. Your walkthrough was ideal :)
SpookBolt May 20, 2023 @ 7:41pm 
Wow this is perfect! I never would have known how to access the 2nd email account without this! Thx! I wish there had been some hints in the game for when ppl are stuck, but your guide was even better than in-game hints would've been

Interestingly, for me, accessing the second e-mail account was the last thing to do (right before finishing the game). Have you accidentally changed the order? Or did I play a different revision than you? ;)
(Anyway, that's a minor detail. Excellent guide!)

Thank you for creating this! A subtle hint without ruining the game is exactly what I was looking for. Great work!
