My problem is simple. I know the password for my encrypted files, but I downloaded a newer version of Axcrypt and it asked me for my email and LOGIN password which I have forgotten. Obviously my important files are encrypted and I can not get into them. How do I get a new LOGIN password so I can decryprt my own files ?
Here’s the thing – if you have an old account that you’ve forgotten the password for, you can safely reset it. You should then use that password when you sign in to AxCrypt to work with your files. In the future after the upgrade, you’ll just be using that password. If your existing password for your files is strong enough, do use that. It’ll make the use much easier.
