To only have a security code is not enough it seems...

The securitycode makes me not feeling safe, what if the app could have 2 security codes for each folder, one like now, and one where you could write a couple of words, would make it 1000x more difficult to guess the folders security info

People could just randomly write any numbers and by accident get your folder code or any other persons, so I can't guess yours, but i can guess so i will get someones folder code, and then get all the shit they have... surely you understand that? :)

The chance of someone guessing an active code seems very low, don't you think?

33 characters, with numbers.

That's

2,345,400,329,006,096,

225,919,609,253,801,948,

715,612,166,129,406,068

Combinations.

very low chance perhaps, but if it could happen just 1 time, that's reason enough to add some extra security, don't you think? It's the most intressting sync app, why not give it the best security too?

because security already is "the best". why don't you serach the forums before you repeat the same wrong assumptions that has been explained so many times?

You should do a little searching for the probabilities of someone guessing a secret, Hassanova. If you do that you'll find that your suggestion making it 1,000x harder to guess isn't good enough, because somebody could still guess it. In fact if you make it a trillion times harder that's still not good enough, because somebody could still guess it. Perhaps you have a suggestion that will make it impossible to guess it?
