The first time you use ReQorder you will be prompted to create an account. Your account does not need a name, and you can opt to not use a password. Either way, your properties file and any database that you choose to encrypt will be encrypted and linked to this account and will be inaccessible to any other account.
Unless you choose to enable e-mail alerts, ReQorder does not store any Personally Identifiable Information (PII). In order to use e-mail alerts the program needs to store the log-in credentials for you e-mail server. Your mail server password will be encrypted before it is stored in the properties file. For your safety this file is always encrypted, but it is up to you if you want to be more secure and lock your account with a password. It is highly recommended to use a password if you choose to use e-mail alerts. Please make sure to read the privacy statement.
Using a password means you'll have to enter your password every time you start the program. Your ReQorder password is not stored anywhere, so if you forget your password there is no way to retrieve it and gain access to your account. In that case you'll have to create a new account which means you will lose all the settings of your old account (mail server settings, watchlists etc..) and you won't be able to access any encrypted databases created with your lost account.
By default, ReQorder makes a backup of your account (your properties file and all your databases) every time the program starts and closes. If you are having problems logging in due to missing or corrupted authentication files you can try restoring to the last known working account through the accounts creation page. You can choose to disable automatic account backup in the properties menu.
