Database Encryption

 Database Encryption is located under the Database tab, and Database grouping

The database encryption is used to set a password on the two files that contain the congregation's information (terrdb.accdb and terrdb2.accdb). Once encrypted these databases can only be opened by the Multi-Terr application or the Multi-Terr team.

This option may be useful for congregations that live in a country where privacy laws are in place or there may be concerns to keep the congregation's members information strictly confidential.

To remove the encryption: click on the Database Encryption menu again


  • Encrypting a database can slow down performance, therefore it is recommended to use only if necessary
  • If the database is encrypted, we strongly recommend to also set a password for the application in the Options module
