afaik it not. You would auto-decrypt all your passwords on each start if
you would save the Master-Password. If you don't need it, you can
disable it in the preferences.

Note: if you upgraded from SM1.1.x and you think you haven't used a
Master-Password in SM1, you probably disabled it's usage without making
the Master password empty in SM1. SM2 then imports that Master-Password
and uses it. (this is a known bug see
<>  for details)
If you remember your old Master-Password, feel free to disable the
Master-PW in the preferences with it by entering the old password and
leaving the new password blank twice.
If you can't remember it, the fastest way would be to press the reset
button there (but keep in mind that this will kill all saved passwords
at once, so make sure you know all of them ;-))


Thank you for this help. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think I have had to enter the Master password on SM previously and Firefox also only when a bank certificate. Now on SM 2.0 I was asked for the Master password each time I started the browser or email client. I had selected in preferences to ask for it the first time it was needed.

By the way, now I have reset the Master password and left it blank.
What I thought of, was that I used to save the password to access my ISP email provider.
