If you wish to store sensitive information like user names and passwords, you can save them encrypted. Right click on an empty cell and choose "New Encrypted Clip" from the menu. In the editor that opens,
you can create a composite "Log On" clip which is described here, or you can simply create a text clip. To create a text clip, ignore the blue notice about logon and clip sets and just type.
Note that when you save an encrypted clip, the first few words are not automatically used as the clip name. The clip name is not encrypted and you need to supply it here..
If you have not already entered a master password, you will be asked for it when you save your first encrypted clip.
Encrypted clips cannot be read from their files and do not show in the preview window. They are decrypted at paste time only when you are logged in with your master password. You can log out at any time by selecting Options (Encryption) from the tool menu and clicking here..
As well as manually logging off, you can opt to be logged out automatically when you leave the computer idle. (Choose from 1 to 5 minutes idle time.)
Once logged out, encrypted clips cannot be pasted until you reenter your master password.
Forgotten your password?
If you forget your password, you cannot decrypt any of the encrypted clips you created with it so you might as well delete them
To start again with a new password...
1. Select Backup and
Restore on the Tools menu and make a note of the data folder.
2. Close Spartan.
3. Locate the data folder and delete the file Keys.dat from it.
4. Restart Spartan.
You can now enter a new password and start creating encrypted clips again. Any clips you created with the old password will not decrypt with the new one. If you subsequently remember your old password, you can reinstate it and decrypt your old clips by repeating this process and reentering your original password.
