When I start &RQ with "lock on start" it's cool, but if someone doesn't know my password he can read history, it's very bad. Is it possible to correct this? Please, help, it's importatnt. It's better to shutdown &RQ with wrong password at all

the lock feature is not thought to stop people from reading your history.
in facts, if you move the history on another &RQ, you can read it as well.

the lock feature is thought to block &RQ while online, so you don't need to logoff.
Someone asked me for a lock-on-start feature, so i made it, but as you can read, it won't stop anyone skilled.

For protecting history and so on i planned another system, and it is already implemented for an half.
It will let you select a second password (if you are lazy you can select the same one) and encrypt history and will be used for lock as well.

As you could possibly notice, there's a warning not to use encryption, because it's not ready. So it's fully your fault, sorry.

if you enter the correct password it does not display messages?

since you saw the warning, you had better made a backup of your messages, did you?
