Could you give me the exact report in infotable? I can provide a patch that can be applied with desktop 1.3 debugging feature

The key in InfoTable is "PASSCODEMOBILE".

Generally, I don't find the pass-code protection very useful but some people like it that way.

Thank you for the information. I was almost giving up using the app, which I've been using for several years now.
Problem solved!

Sorry for the bad english (google translate)

@Icfabris, I'm glad that you can use the app again without issues.
However, I'm not sure how best to tackle this problem for everyone else. There is no way to know whether the user really entered a wrong password or not. Also, if there are no encryption libraries, should we simply not use the PIN? This would make the whole feature pointless.

I guess that the migration would be to remove pin on an older version of Android and restore on a new one. That still seems the least painful option.
Cheers

Hello

I tried to open the sql database, never found the password
I deleted the password on my tablet (android 6.0.1), than save the database
 and when I want to open it from my Xperia Z5 Android 7.0, I  always  have the same issue, the app need a password although I deleted it !

I am close to go to an other app, although I wasusing this one for years (and like it)
Is somebody have an idea ?

Thanks in advance
Airtay

Hi. It seems like you're not getting your database onto the phone. You have to download the database to the phone using some other program. You can not rely on MMEX sync because it needs to open a database first and the database on the phone has the PIN that can not be decrypted.

Glad to see that. This is exactly my argument - I see no point in encrypting the database or protecting it with a PIN if the device is already secured.
Everyone has their reasons, I guess.

Maybe you need to try to clean your cache. Maybe that will help you
