When you start AxCrypt, you are asked to sign in. The password used for sign in is the password used to encrypt and decrypt files as long as you are signed in.
It’s just like your email program. You sign in once, then you can read and write email without typing the password every time – until you sign out, or are automatically signed out.
AxCrypt works the same. You remain signed in until you sign out, or are signed out – which happens when you lock the computer, log out of Windows, the computer goes to sleep or is shut down.
