Locking Codebook

Introduction

When you open Codebook you are required to enter your Master Password. This unlocks or opens Codebook and allows the software to read and write information to the encrypted database. Codebook only decrypts your data as it is needed. Conversely, when you lock Codebook, the connection to the database is closed and it can't be reopened with out re-entering your Master Password.

You have logged in and now you want to lock Codebook because you are done using it. You do this by Locking Codebook.
