Passwords and Security

Smart phones are frequently lost or stolen. Consequently, you should password-protect any Vault 3 documents containing any data that you would not want to fall into the wrong hands. Also, you should specify a screen lock PIN and a short screen timeout. Screen lock PINs are more secure than patterns, because patterns can often be deduced by inspecting the smudges on the phone's screen.

When you password-protect a Vault 3 document, that document is securely encrypted. To password-protect a Vault 3 document, open that file in Vault 3. Select File on the Action Bar.

Click the "Password" button. Make sure the "Require a password" checkbox is checked. Enter a password. Note, passwords that are simply one or more words found in a dictionary are less secure. Remember your password! You will not be able to open a password-protected Vault 3 document without it.

Specifying a Password for a Vault 3 Document

You can choose to have Vault 3 save passwords in memory, to avoid having to enter the password every time you open a password-protected document. To enable password caching, click the Menu button, and then click "Settings", and check the "Cache Passwords" checkbox. Cached passwords are stored in Vault 3's memory (RAM), not on persistent storage. When Vault 3 is run after being shut down by the system, passwords will have to be re-entered.
