Serious question that I don’t understand–I’m not trying to sound like a smart-ass, though I realize my question kind of comes-off that way, sorry:
- The Master Password is not the encryption password for the backup.
- The Master Password obfuscates the encryption password locally.
- The need of the Master Password prevents the program from starting automatically (which you never want in a backup program).
- If my attacker is sitting in front of my computer, he doesn’t care about my backup encryption password, because he’s already sitting in front of my computer.
So…Why is there a Master Password? It seems to just get in the way.
