My Moneydance opens up automatically. How do I retrieve my sign-in info (user ID; passcode)?

    I'm a fellow user.

    I think you need to elaborate further.

    If you have setup your system so that Moneydance starts automatically the only thing you may need to enter is your encryption password for the data that is being opened (if you have set one) If you were to forget this password there is no recovery as there is no way to retrieve this password.

    Thank you. To be clear, when I opened Moneydance program I used to have to always enter my password; but now it is opening without me having to enter it. Apparently it has memorized my password. I just wanted to resest Moneydance so that I would have to enter my password again … and then I would enter the password I suspect it is, confirming exactly what it is (so if I die my wife can get it!!). I know it is one of three possible passwords, so I’m not worried about not getting back in.


    Do you know how I can open Moneydance so that it requires my passcode again?


    Thank you.

    Moneydance does not have the capability to "remember" the encryption (master) password so you do not have to enter it.

    To see if a password is currently set use the menu item File --> Passwords
