Phantom Security & Access Changes



I use FM Pro Vers 9 on a single computer and have a moderate amount of technical experience with it (read: I've rectified most previous difficulties with only minor assistance from other forum members). I am also running Mac OSX (10.5.8). I am the only user of the computer in question and I required a password to access the computer.


My issue relates to sudden, inexplicable changes to the security settings on my databases. I use 3 dbases in my health practice: (a) patient information - highly secure information and password protected, (b) referring specialists information - unprotected, (c) administrative information that helps me run the practice - highly secure information and password protected. Typically, launching either of the protected databases from a desktop alias requires that I enter a password.


Over the last 2-3 days I've noticed that I can launch the patient info database from the desktop alias without it requesting a password. The other protected dbase continues to function as it always has and will not launch without a password.


Does anyone have any ideas why this might be happening and what I can do to rectify it??

I must be able to protect confidential patient information.
