Does password manager encrypt an already saved password if it is set afterwards?
I had to give access to another root user on my machine a few days ago and I have already a lot of passwords saved without using a master password. I don't want that new root user to be able to easily copy my fx sqlite database and view them. When setting a new master password, the passwords that were already saved before setting that master password are encrypted again using the new master password or should I delete them all and add them manually?
hello unreal4u, setting a master password will encrypt the whole sqlite database and also affect all your currently stored passwords.Read this answer in context 0
