    John a

    Just installed the latest version.  It encrypts but doesn’t ask for an encryption password.  When I double click on an encrypted file, it simply opens as usual.  What am I doing wrong?

    Hello John,

    This is by design, so you don’t have to enter the password all the time. As soon as your screen saver goes active, you sign out of Windows, or your computer goes to sleep or is turned off AxCrypt will also sign out, and then require the password when you get back.

    See for more about this, and some common questions.
