I’m not happy with the process in v2 and can also get the arguments that a good password is better than many different, nothing positive.

You write that the password is not saved during the initial installation. This may be true, because you are storing a hash value of the password. Otherwise it would not be possible for them to check the login data on the account.

And with the hash data of a password I can, if I am not very deceived, decrypt any encrypted document. It may be that I with a good hash (Sha512 etc.) the password does not get out. I do not need that in this case, because I have the hashed password.

If I assume now that someone to the password hashes with Axcrypt comes, all encrypted files are accessible.

Have I misunderstood something? If so, please clarify me.

Best regards
