I use different passwords with different types of files. I appears that AxCrypt only allows <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>one</span> password, the “AxCrypt ID”. It no longer accepts the different passwords that I have used in the past.
Perhaps I do not understand the workings of the new version, but to have only one password (the “sign in” password) means that all my files are available to anyone who wakes my computer from ssameleep. This is terrible security! We are constantly advised to use different passwords for each account, which I do. I do not want AxCrypt to automatically assign a different password to my encrypted files, (and the SAME password for all files).
Am I not understanding the mechanics?
