Hello AK-Neuss and Norman,

AxCrypt won’t clean temporaries if it decides there’s a risk of modifications getting lost if we just delete them. We can’t re-encrypt them and clean them if you’re not signed in, since we don’t know the password (in theory we could use your public key actually, but so far we’ve decided not to do so, since we have a strong statement that you can always open an AxCrypt file if you know the password. If we just used the public key, and you lost the private key, then the file would not be possible to open).
