I hope this is the right place to ask such a silly question, but here goes (I would've used IRC for this, if I could've found a channel for KeePass).

So, I just installed KeePass 2, and on first launch the application asked me something probably important, but I accidentally clicked the "deny"-button, before I had the chance to read what it was about!

Can anyone tell me what KeePass asks on startup? (And possibly if I can/should enable it in settings?)

(I tried uninstalling & reinstalling the app, but it didn't ask it anymore!)

Thanks a lot!

As memory serves, it asks what method of authentication you would like to use to access your passwords:

  • Computer Account
  • Password
  • Key File

More info can be found from keypass:

In the link you posted, it says: "On first launch of KeePass it will prompt you to enable (default) or disable automatic checks for updates." I believe it was just that. Thanks! – user2499946 Sep 23 '13 at 5:51
