Hello Cryptomator community.
Where are passwords saved when this feature is turned on?
• Store passwords with WIndows data Protection
In what cases should I use this option?, I personally like to keep it off as I feel it gives me more security knowing that none of my passwords are saved in Windows
Although the truth is not how this option works, if anyone knows more about this or if it is recommended that it is not disabled, or some data that I should take into accountr, I would like to know.
Excuse me my English, I do not master this language well.
Thank you for your attention.
I’m new to Cryptomator and working myself through the preferences tabs…
There is an option in the “General” tab which is “Store password with: Windows data protection” What does it mean? By googeling “Windows data protection” there is nothing which explains it to me…
From my point of view it’s totally up to you if you want to use this or not, so I can’t recommend one way or not.
And what does this function do?, I am not very clear about this option so I ask.
This function will use the windows system keychain to store your vault password, so you don’t have to enter it if you want to unlock your vault.
Be aware that everyone with access to your system with your user account will then be able to unlock your vault also, without knowing your vault password.
