Identity safe not so safe ?

Hello,

First, I'm quite satisfied with this new product ;)

But, for me there's quite a big lack of security with exporting stuff.

When your vault is open, even if you ask vault password before filling out any forms, you can export all your account password in plain text with all unencrypted passords...

Don't you think exporting all accounts unencrypted like this should require at least vault password ?

Best Regards

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback about the product.

Now coming to your query with regards to the security when exporting the data,currently we don't have any security check in place for exporting the data from your open vault. This is the behavior by design in our other main products as well. But we make sure that none can break into the vault by having a two level of protection i.e. logging to NA and logging to vault. You can post this as a suggestion in our product suggestion area and we would see what best we can do.

Regards,

Prasanna

Another thing is, when your vault is open, even if you ask vault password before filling out any forms, you can view / edit / change all your account passwords in ID Safe menu with all unencrypted passwords.
