Is it possible to password protect the MoneyDance program/files so you need to login on opening?

    You can password protect you data file(s) by using the menu item: File --> Passwords

    Hi Trevor,

    Just to add a cautionary note...

    Make sure not to forget your Master Password. It is not retrievable.

    Make sure the password 'Hint' is something that will absolutely give to a clear path to remembering the Master Password.

    Hello dwg,

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    I actually found the solution myself shortly after posting the question.

    It is reassuring to know people out there willing to help though.
