Password Protection is Here
Yes, you are reading this right. Password Protection for firmware and Tibbo BASIC projects is finally here! Set the password, and the device is locked!
Passwords are set using the updated Device Explorer — install our new TIDE V2.50 to test this (don’t forget to upgrade your device’s firmware too). Your Tibbo BASIC application can also password-protect the device automatically.
TIDE will optionally cache passwords so you don’t need to input them over and over again. Device log-ins are secure — eavesdropping on the network won’t reveal passwords.
And what if you forgot the password? When TIDE prompts for it, keep the MD button pressed while clicking OK in the Change Device Password or Enter Device Password dialog — this will bypass the password protection (once).
A few of you have politely (ahem…) requested this feature on the forum, and now we did it… hope you sleep better at night. Enjoy!
