1> Add a new entry in your Keepass database, without saving it
2> Leave the window open
3> The workspace should be locked, according to the "inactivity lockout" option (sorry, bad english translation for french "Verrouiller l'espace de travail après une période d'inactivité de Keepass (en secondes)")
4> Minutes later, click on the windows : a popup ask for you to save the database
5> Just click "cancel", and you're back to the database without giving the password.
I suppose this is not the correct behaviour, as it allows someone to have access to your password list, should you forget that you didn't save in the first place.
Turn on the option to Save on lock. Tools > Options > Advanced > Start and Exit, Automatically save….
Ok thanks, I will do that.
But on a side note, shouldn't this be treated as something to correct ? It would be wise to display the password prompt before restoring the access to the main window ?
Maybe i'll lost a newly created password should the intruder really want to bug me, but that's life and my bad. And the rest of my database would stay unseen.
And please, my english is under construction, so please don't shout / laugh / post on Facebook….
KeePass does not lock if a window is open, or if the database has not been saved. The assumption is you are still working with it.
I did laugh at the "post on facebook" suggestion. ;-))
