At the bottom, Ashley coded a message. It can be discovered by using Ashley's bookmark along with the Harold Richards' bobblehead received in Episode 1.
This is a shift cipher using the inscription from the Harold Richards' bobblehead as the plaintext and the string of letters from Ashley's bookmark as the encoded text.
Once decoded, the message reads:
- "THE PASSWORD IS SAGUARO."
Ashley's OffLine Portal
Both of Ashley's contacts' names are encoded.
Using the same shift cipher as we used to crack the login password, we can discover that:
- AKJPQ = LEWIS
- YNWZZPK = FRANNIE
Lewis sent Ashley a photo of TFC, Harold, and him all having drinks together.
- So TFC and Harold were buds the night of the car crash, which would explain why they were both in the car together that night.
