Re: When spelling is important.

"Never leave your password manager's database unlocked if you're not using it."

If your machine is compromised with a trojan running and waiting for an instance of keypass to attach to you are going to loose all your password the first time the database is unlocked.

Your 'clear lesson' typically isn't going to protect passwords for more than a couple of hours.
