Libraries may be protected using password protection and may be encrypted using AES-128. A single master password is used for restricting the access to libraries.

To protect a library:

  1. Open the Library menu and select Protection.
  2. If you haven’t set up a master password yet, you’ll be prompted to enter one.
  3. Enable/disable library encryption and click on the OK button.

Now, when opening a protected library, you will have to enter the master password (if it wasn’t entered yet).

Please note

  • In an encrypted library, only string fields of the entries are encrypted.
  • If you forget your master password, it will be impossible to recover it, and you will not be able to decrypt your data.
  • If the Memento application is unused for 5 minutes, the access to all protected libraries will be closed automatically.
  • To reopen the access, you’ll have to reenter the master password.
