Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus are provided for protecting confidential information. The method includes the steps of providing a plurality of files where each file contains at least one item of secret information, such as a password for a private account. Access to the plurality of files is password protected with a master password. To access the plurality of files, the master password must be entered into a master password entry field. The files are deleted upon successive entry of incorrect passwords into the master password entry field a predetermined number of times.

La présente invention se rapporte à un procédé et à un appareil qui permettent de protéger des informations confidentielles. Le procédé comprend les étapes consistant à fournir une pluralité de fichiers, chaque fichier contenant au moins un élément d'information secret, comme un mot de passe pour un compte privé par exemple. L'accès à la pluralité de fichiers est protégé par un mot de passe, ce mot de passe étant un mot de passe principal. Pour accéder à la pluralité des fichiers, le mot de passe principal doit être entré dans une zone de saisie de mot de passe principal. Les fichiers sont supprimés lorsque des mots de passe incorrects sont saisis de façon répétée un nombre prédéterminé de fois dans la zone de saisie de mot de passe principal.
