I am running SPlashID 8 on a Windows PC is a secure area. How do I turn off Auto Lock?

Thanks for contacting us. You cannot completely disable auto-lock, but you can increase the time out in General Settings to 999 minutes, which should be adequate.

Is there a reason why this changed in the new version? It was very convenient to be able to leave it open during the day and overnight. I would at least think you should provide the option.

Thanks so much for your taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will take this into consideration when updating the app in the future.

999 minutes should cover all day and overnight, at least. :)

I agree with John. I just updated to version 8, and it would be more convenient if I could turn off the Auto Lock.

I have lock out set for 300 minutes. It closed after less than 5. I hate this feature and request that the lock-out be disabled. This is on my home computer and I don't need lockout. If anything happens to me, all the notes for my executor are on SplashID. I need it to be accessible without passwords.

Thanks for contacting us.
8.1.1 PC Desktop app already has this. Make sure you use 8.1.1 and not 8.1.0 or older.
8.1.1 Desktop app is not new – it was released in the beginning of August.
Please tell me if you need anything else, or have any other questions or comments.
