I AGREE! I would definitely prefer the program to force you to login first, before accessing the archive. just because it's on my personal computer does not mean that i feel secure that no one else will read it. plus, a program is much easier to stumble upon than a file, so someone merely has to wonder "what's this?" and click on the program link.. and they instantly have access to your entries.
in addition, a lot of people have multiple accounts, so it would make more sense to ask for a login upfront, so as to determine which account they want to work with.
I totally agree! I love lj archive but removed it because I was too afraid of someone finding the program and having full access. I would love to see a required username and password!
