After your NVR/DVR is fully booted up you will be brought to the 'Activation' screen. In there you can click in the empty field and an on screen keyboard will popup. Using that keyboard you can setup a password.

Reserved Email settings: When this option is Checked it will allow you to enter an email address on next screen which will be used to send a Verification code when the QR code is sent to the Server for password reset.

Export GUID: When this option is Checked it allows you to export GUID file which can later be used to recover the password of the NVR/DVR if needed. You will need to insert a USB Drive into the NVR/DVR in order to export the file.

Security Questions Configuration: When this option is checked it will allow you to setup security questions incase password recovery is needed in future. You will be required to answer the questions exactly as you enter them in order to reset the password.
