All of your one-time passwords are stored in a vault. If you choose
to set a password, which is highly recommended, the vault will be encrypted
using AES-256. If someone with malicious intent gets a hold of the vault file,
it’s impossible for them to retrieve the contents without knowing the password.
Entering your password each time you need access to a
one-time password can be cumbersome. Fortunately, you can also enable
fingerprint unlock if your device has a fingerprint scanner. More Info »
