I am using Etherum wallet (this thing: https://imgur.com/a/WGDLs)
I created a new account, transferred 0.01 etherum into it.
Then I went to accounts -> backup -> accounts, which took me to Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Ethereum\keystore
I made a copy of the file in keystore, and then shutdown etherum waller, deleted the keystore folder, and restarted etherum wallet.
When I restarted etherum wallet, the app showed no accounts present. I went to Accounts -> Import Accounts and added the file I'd copied earlier. To my surprise, it started displaying my balance again without prompting for a password.
- Is this normal?
- Does this mean Etherum wallet is caching my password somewhere? Or caching the decrypted private key (as I understand, the private key is present in the keyfile encrypted using your password) somewhere so it does not need to re-decrypt it?
- If I want to make doubly sure I remember the password correctly, is there an 'easy' and safe way to test the password? i.e. is there some way to get Ethereum wallet to 'forget' so I can add my account, and it'll prompt me for my password?
