    If I use the version 2 of axcrypt what’s happen if I change password ?

    The files with old password will be accessible only with this old password or is it possible to use it with new password ?

     

    Thanks.

    Changing a password in AxCrypt 2 means that all your files are accessible using your new password. The explanation for how this works is technically complicated but the encryption is very secure.

    • All of your old files can be opened with your old or new password
    • All of your new files can only be opened with your new password
    • Any old file that you modify can only be opened with the new password

    The answer is easy:

    Your new password can be used for everything once it’s been changed.

    Never forget a password with AxCrypt or you’ll lose access to your data.

    Thank you, Peter! A very good summary of a potentially complicated question to answer.
