Chapter 2: Password Protection
To protect the software against unauthorized configuration changes, an additional password has to be supplied for the GUI to launch. When starting the GUI for the first time, a self-defined password is requested. See Set initial password.
- The password defined in the local GUI is also the password for the core components.
- To prevent brute-force password attacks, a delay is used in GUI and CLI startup if too many incorrect passwords have been entered.

Any eject or detach request for a volume must be confirmed with the password while the GUI is running. After confirming the volume, it will be detached or ejected.
- When updating or uninstalling BlockyforVeeam®, a password is only required if the core is installed.
