Using an insecure password is a risk.
If you’re worried about a family member seeing your private files then make a new user account in Windows and put a password on that or better still don’t share the computer.
AxCrypt is professional software intended to secure files to the extent that the encryption cannot be broken. Using an insecure password would defeat the protection afforded by the software and then people would blame AxCrypt.
