About a data vault

Data vaults are designed to protect your confidential data against unauthorized access. A data vault is a data storage on your computer that you can lock or unlock using the password that only you know. You have to enter the password to modify the files stored in a locked data vault. If you have entered an invalid password 10 times in a row, access to the data vault is blocked for one hour.

If you lose or forget the password, you will not be able to recover your data.

Kaspersky Total Security uses the following data encryption algorithms to create data vaults: AES XTS with an effective key length of 56 bits.
