I'm here to consult those who know more about encryption issues, since I do not have much knowledge on the subject.
A few years ago, I acquired a program that allows me to store information in a single file. The program had to protect the folders with password, and I was putting it to the test, until I discovered how to access that information (supposedly encrypted) without entering the password.
This is where I ask how is it possible that I could access the information through the same program and without entering the password if the file is encrypted? Should not I have obtained illegible information?
As far as I know, by entering the password, the file is decrypted and readable. But in this case, the developer says it uses encryption and I managed to access the information without the password. What he says is not real? There are different types of encryption?
