Cannot really do anything much. Pretty much stops you dead the moment you go into settings and enable password lock. All you get is a purple screen and there is jack s*it you can do about it.

Reinstalling doesn't work either.

Yeah, confirmed. It's a known bug: https://github.com/getferdi/ferdi/issues/750

There's a development version of the software (Nightly version 5.5.1) that apparently fixes the issue but it's not seen general release yet.

Meanwhile there's a fix to get it unstuck:
Open C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Ferdi\config\settings.json
Edit the line: "lockingFeatureEnabled": true, to "lockingFeatureEnabled": false,
Save, then close and reload Ferdi. The app may still show a purple screen but click on it a couple of times and it clears back to the usual app windows. Suggest leaving that option well alone until the next release!

Just wanted to add that the rest of the software is brilliant so I'm sticking with Ferdi as my default app for now.
