Forums › Bugs & issues › Security Problem : Axcrypt do not ask for password in offline mode
This topic contains 2 replies, has 2 voices, and was last updated by Svante 3 months, 2 weeks ago.
When i use for the first time Axcrypt, i create an account etc. Axcrypt ask for my account password only for online mode (it is logical i agree)
But, if i cancel login and use Axcrypt in offline mode, i can encrypt and decrypt all files without asking for a password.
So, in conclusion, if my laptop is stolen, if the thief can login into my windows account, he can decrypt all the files in “Mes Documents” without need to enter a password.
It is right ?
Forget my post (and delete it) i make a big mistake in my test, i do not see that i was online mode. I redo test and for decrypt Axcrypt ask for the password.
Very sorry for the noise.
