Database Encryption is located under the File 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, simply select Database Encryption 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
