I recently put a password on my database. It was for temporary security. Now I want to remove it but am unable. In the “database properties” window I go in, unlock, make changes, and no matter what I do it still remembers the old password. I really don’t want ANY password right now… How do I change back to this?
Here are the steps to remove password protection from a DT database:
Note: You will have to enter your password to open the database before you can remove it. So please don’t create a password and then forget it!
 Select File > Database Properties.
 Click on the Lock icon to unlock the Password field. You will have to enter your password to do this.
 Triple-click in the Password field to select the old password and press Delete to remove it.
 Click on the Lock icon to lock it.
On your next launch of DEVONthink the database will open without requiring a password.
Hope this helps.
Thanks Bill, that worked. I think the step I was missing was the last – relocking the password entry section. I guess I had thought the lock was for relocking the database with a password and since I didn’t want a password I had not been doing that. Makes sense now though, and works, thanks.
