      Yes, I did include that warning in my documentation. I did so mainly to
      protect myself in case some sensitive data encrypted through NoteTab was
      cracked. NoteTab is used by quite a few large organizations and companies
      (including the US government and the secret service of several countries).
      I wouldn't want them to rely on NoteTab to keep extremely sensitive data
      safe from prying eyes.

      However, unless you are under investigation by some state agency or of
      prime interest to large groups of expert crackers, you can consider the
      encryption as very secure. The algorithm is based on RC4.
