Hi guys,

in the advanced options for unlocking the vault on windows Desktop it is possible to save the password and unlock the vault every time windows starts automaticaly.

My question: Is it secure to save the password on windows?

Thanks in forward,

It’s saved in the system keychain. So I would say: yes it is.

Do you trust your local device, which utilizes hdd encryption and good anti malware protection and you only want to add protection to cloud-stored data? Then yes, it is secure.

If people can access your Windows machine, they might be able to hack the system keychain. In this case you better don‘t store it.

So once again the answer is „it depends“. :wink:
