|FV2 requires an initial unlocking before the regular logon screen (double login).|
As far as this product, what does "The security risk is easy to overcome by simply turning off the computer instead of putting it to sleep, and disabling the "Automatic Login" setting. This way, passwords will not be present in memory and cannot be recovered." mean? Does it mean if you turn off automatic login, the password isn't stored in RAM? Their statement doesn't make a lot of sense since turning the computer off empties RAM anyway (I know, someone "proved" it is still there for a short period of time) so why worry about the Automatic Login setting. If they actually mean either of these works, then I don't know of any government computer that is allowed to use automatic login so this problem is moot.
