    This is really extreme. Well if you really value security that much. I love it.

    I cannot find anything that calls itself specifically "AutoLogin".  How do you enable it, or verify that it's enabled?

    It is the under setting at the top right on the Tresorit application. I guess they don't call it "Autologin" perse but just a checkbox to automatically login when Windows starts.

    I store my password in a secure note in LastPass.

    Dear Peter,

    Autologin can be switched on and off in the Settings menu.

    I don't see "Autologin" option, I do see "Automatically Start with Windows" -- is that the same?

    "For autologin, the key derived with PBKDFv2 is stored only on your computer" -- where and how exactly is this key stored?

    Autologin is switched on by default. In the case you click the log out button Autologin information is deleted.

    Autologin information is stored using the windows data protection api

    So, if I've logged in, then logged out and logged in again .... then restart my computer, will it automatically login or just automatically start Tresorit?

    It will just start Tresorit.

    Actually I tested myself and it DID log me in automatically.

    Sorry I misunderstood the question. Every single time you log in, the auto login is switched on again and every single time you log out it is switched off.

    Would you like to ask for a feature where autostart and Autologin can be set independently from each other?

    Yes, Wuala starts automatically, but I don't allow it to "remember me" ... every time I start my machine, I need to login to Wuala, that is how I would like it to work for Tresorit.

    If I lost the password and re-register, will I lose the special 50GB I had via Lifehacker?

    I think this is exactly the right approach from a security POV !!

    @Gordon:

    If you re-register with your old account after losing your password  the system will recognize immediately that you own the increased quota and will give it to you automatically, if not please send a mail to support@tresorit.com and we will grant the upgraded amount for you.

    If you register with another account then please contact us and we will upgrade your new account and at the same time downgrade your previous one.

     

    @ Christophe:

    Thank you for your feedback, we are on the same page.

    Hey Myke, 

    I saw your response above regarding the forgot password and creating a new account with the same e-mail to keep the promotional space. However, if I try to recreate my account on the Windows Application, it asks me to DELETE my account because the e-mail already exists. Is it safe to do that. Will the space that I got with the Lifehacker promotion still be there?

    Of course, the promotional space is for life, you cannot lose that privilege. The system will recognize that you have the upgraded account and will grant you the storage space. If that is not the case, please contact us again and we will upgrade your account.

    Is the Tresorit site down?  I could log into my application during the week, but today I get "wrong email or password".  I use Lasspast to save my info, so I know it's correct.  But just in case I had entered the info wrong, I deleted my account (since I'm evaluating Tresorit for an article, my backup isn't critical), and created a new password.  However, after activating my account, I'm getting the same error.

    How can I update my current password? I do know it and I want to change it to a stronger one. I don't want to create a new account because I have big promotional space. Or can I move that promotional space to a new account?

    Can you help please - I have autologin on my computer (I suppopse this is the setting checked "remember me on this computer"?, as I can't see any autologin button?)

    I have forgotten my password but as I have autologin I don't need it on this pc. However I'm getting a new pc soon. If I re-register and delete my account, then make a new one with a new password, will the password that is encrypted on this Windows pc be deleted also?(I don't use a password to login to Windows). What will happen when I get the new pc?

    @ Jorge: Dear Jorge, Actually the password change function is on our roadmap which will be added to our client within a month as we also think that changing the password is a necessary feature, so we would like to ask for your patience. By the way, your storage space gets moved to your new account as the system recognizes automatically that you had the promotional space. If not, please write a mail to our support team at support@tresorit.com and they will help you out.

    @Robynne: Dear Robynne, Thank you very much for contacting us. If you re-create your account (by signing up using your mail address and a different password) you will be able to log in and then you will be able to auto-login again with your new password.

     

    Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Hello, 

    using Tresorit for Android. Has I lost my password trying to register again with same email and password I'm told that there is another account with a different password so I have totry another password. In other words it doesn't give me the possibility to cancel my account.

     

    Can you help?

    Dear Giampaolo,

    Thank you very much for contacting us, please let me tell you that if you wish to register again (due to password loss) you need to sign up again using the existing mail address and a different password, that way the system will ask you whether you wish to delete your account. By doing so you will be able to re-create your account.

    Thank you very much for your cooperation and your understanding.

    Hello,

    As I wrote trying to register with same address and a different password (of course as I'm not remembering my previous password) I receive the following message:

    "You are already registered with the same email address but different password. Try another password".

    In never offered to overwrite the precious tresorit box.
