    Now we can choose the messages.
    If you have multiple messages, you can select multiple messages. They will all have a square on the right-hand side of the screen. Press down on the square, and it will have a check in it with a blue background. You can do this with multiple messages. Put checks in the boxes, and they will all be selected.

    To confirm the choice, press 'Move'.
    It will have the number of messages that were selected. We have only selected one, therefore there is only "1" inside the brackets. Press down on this icon, and it will move the message to the 'Secure' box. If you're doing this for the first time, then it's going to ask you to input a password or to choose a password for the 'Secure' box, so do that. Enter and confirm the password, and now you can move the message to the 'Secure' box. We want to go to the 'Secure' box to see if it worked.
