#233 Use thumbdrive along with password.


I carry my thumbdrive everywhere with me and can't
imagine what would happen if someone got a hold of it
with my key on it. It would be nice if you could also
use the thumbdrive along with a correct password to
gain access to the database. That way if somebody were
to get a hold of your thumbdrive they wouldn't have
complete access to your password database via the
thumbdrive key. Maybe give the person the option
depending on security preference?

    You can already choose to use both a key file and a master password, together. They are not mutually exclusive.

      Why are you replying to a twelve year old thread?

      Well, I admit I did not check the date before replying. I'm not sure how I ended up on such an old entry, but I had been perusing the list of open "feature request" tickets, hoping to vote on anything that looked interesting, not realizing such old entries would even still be open in the issue tracker.

      This one in particular looks like it has either already been resolved, or was a result of user confusion. I assumed this project would close issues as they are implemented or found to be invalid, and they are not treated the same as discussion forum threads; sorry if that isn't the case for some reason.

    Yes, this ticket probably should have been closed a long time ago, but it wouldn't be a good idea to have the system automatically close old, neglected tickets just because they're old; as I'm sure you found in your perusing, some of the concerns expressed in those old tickets are still valid.
