While we have implemented the reliable encryption algorithm, it is theoretically possible to reverse-engineer CPUU code and use the knowledge to decrypt credentials data stored in CPUU configuration file when Unrestricted (not recommended, security risks should be reviewed) encryption mode is used. Thus, using Unrestricted (not recommended, security risks should be reviewed) encryption mode has a chance that your credentials might be compromised. We strictly not recommend to use this mode in the production environment and for administrative credentials. It is only acceptable for evaluation purposes in the test environment.

For more details about encryption modes see Encryption modes section of CPUU Administrator Guide.
