Where is my data stored?
All your data is stored within your device, more specifically within Lockdowns unique app directory. This app directory is only accessible by Lockdown and the device owner. Non of your data is sent over the internet or stored on any servers/storage devices other than your device itself making Lockdown a completely offline app.
Is my data encrypted?
Yes all your data is encrypted and goes through two stages of encryption. The first stage is done using your master password as a key to encrypt your data using AES encryption before saving it to your device. This means every time you open Lockdown, your master password is required to decrypt/unlock your data. The second stage occurs when you lock your device, the iOS file system will automatically encrypt all data within Lockdown and decrypt it when you unlock your device. Note that this second stage of encryption ONLY takes place providing you have setup a password for your device or have Touch ID enabled
Your master password and Touch ID
If Touch ID is enabled within Lockdown your master password is stored safely in keychain ready to be retrieved when Touch ID is authenticated.
If Touch ID is disabled within Lockdown then your master password will be removed from keychain.
Regardless of whether you have Touch ID enabled or not, your master password will be stored temporary while Lockdown is open, authenticated and once your data has been successfully decrypted. The reason for this is so that new data added to Lockdown can be encrypted and saved securely to your device. When Lockdown is closed, your master password is then destroyed. Please note that your master password will still be stored securely in keychain if you have Touch ID enabled.
Who owns the data I enter?
You do! Lockdown does not own the data you enter. You have full ownership of your data which is stored on your device and only your device unless you choose otherwise by using the export and share features within Lockdown. Lockdown is just a tool created to help you organise and manage your accounts, passwords.
