Password protection

To password-protect a phrase file:
  1. Open the main program window.
  2. Highlight the phrase file node in the phrase tree root.
  3. Select File » Set password .
  4. Enter and double-confirm the desired password.

After confirmation, PhraseExpress uses AES-256 "end-to-end" encryption to protect your contents.

Keep the password at a safe place. We won't be able to restore phrase file if you forget the password. There is no backdoor!

Backups of earlier unprotected phrase file versions are still unprotected.

If you share a password-protected phrase file, all users need to know the password. The password cannot be changed after you initiated sharing the phrases.

To remove the password protection:
  1. Open the main program window
  2. Highlight the password-protected phrase file node in the phrase tree root
  3. Select File » Remove password .
  4. Enter the password to authorize yourself for the password removal:

You cannot remove the password protection without knowing the password.
