Hi Gabriel,

I understand the shared admin account – but you don’t leave the system signed in with admin access do you?

AxCrypt will automatically sign out when the windows account is logged out, or the screen saver goes active etc. So it should really work quite well for you in this case.

However, AxCrypt is not multi-user right now. We’ll be adding that function in the future.

It’s an extremely unusual situation – shared Admin account where you work with┬ápersonal sensitive information.

So, no, it’s not perfect for that situation, but apart from the fact that it will remember your email-address (which should not be a secret for your co-admins though), it should work quite well given that you actually sign out or at least enable the screen saver when you leave the system.

If I missed anything, please let me know!
