By allocating a password you can protect the settings for your G DATA software. In this way another user of your computer cannot switch off e.g. the virus monitor or idle scan.
To allocate a password, please enter it in "Password" then "Re-enter password" to prevent typing errors. You can also enter a hint for the password under "Password hint".
Note: The password hint is displayed if an incorrect password has been entered. Hence the password hint should only enable you to infer the password.
Note: Such password protection represents enhanced protection of the software. You can achieve maximum security by working with multiple user accounts. Hence as administrator you should manage e.g. virus protection in your user account and other users (e.g. children, friends or relatives) cannot make changes via their user accounts with restricted permissions.
Note: If you no longer need a password for your G DATA software – e.g. after setting up different user accounts – you can use the "Remove password" button to remove the requirement to enter a password.
