The New database window contains the following fields:
Master password: The common and - depending on the complexity of the master password - safe method for encrypting your database.
Master password and key file: The most secure and comprehensive way to protect your database. You will need both a password and a key file to access it.
Key file: The database will be protected by a key file. Key files contain complex keys that are very secure and cannot be cracked by brute-force attacks. However, please note that anyone who has access to your key file and the database can open it. The key file should be considered similar to a physical key for a safe and therefore be stored accordingly, in a safe location (e.g. on a USB drive).
If you chose Authentication by Master Password, please enter your desired master password here or open the Master Password Generator (second icon with gear wheel to the right of the input field) to create a particularly safe master password. For password input, upper and lower case characters are differentiated. With the first eye icon to the right of the input field, you can display or hide your password input.
Re-enter master password: Re-enter the previously entered master password for safety reasons. Both entries must be identical, otherwise you cannot proceed!
WARNING: If you forget your master password and did not enter and deposit a hint, or the hint does not help you after all, there will be NO POSSIBILITY to recover your password inside the file. Please use a password you will remember easily.
NOTE: Please make sure to use a safe master password. It should be at least 8 characters long and contain numbers and letters as well as special characters. The quality bar below the input field Master password helps you with assessing the safety and quality of your entered password.
Once you have filled in all required fields, you can click on OK to save the new file.
