Can I confirm, if I export my public sharing key, anyone that has that txt file would, using Axcrypt software, be able to decrypt every single file I might have encrypted (via the account linked to that specific public key)?
In practical terms it’s the equivalent of me sending someone my password.
If that’s correct, if my public sharing key is stolen/falls into the wrong hands, what would I need to do to stop that public key from working in the future?
I noticed my account e-mail is shown within the txt file would that need to be changed or could I simply change my account password?
Would a new account password create a new public sharing key and invalidate the old public sharing key?
Fortunately this has not happened to me, I simply wish to know the ramifications of using the public sharing key.
