master key is a long key composed of letters, digits and
characters, that is used to encode the confidential data. For best

words that can be found in a dictionary (which could be used for a brute force attack).
It must be entered each time you start the program, unless you checked
the option for remembering it, in which case you have to enter only the

hackers might decode the master key by brute force attacks.
unlock key is a small numeric key (typically 4 or 6 digits long) that

wrong key, it will be deleted and then you will have to enter the long
master key in order to create a new unlock key.
