Password compatibility with old versions

Activate this option if you want your password to be compatible with the previous Banana Accounting versions.
This option not recommended because the password is saved in a less secure mode.

Forgotten password

For information about a forgotten password, please refer to the Questions and Answers page, Password unlock paragraph.
