To make use of the auto unlock feature in the GridcoinResearch Wallet:

  • Click Help -> debug window
  • Open the debug console and type: execute encrypt YOURPASSPHRASE
  • Copy the contents of the passphrase between the quotes, it will not work with quotes in the config file.
  • Add the following line to your gridcoinresearch.conf: autounlock=copiedpassphrase

An addtional security feature exists that only allows the autounlock to be active on the original machine where it was activated, certain attributes of the CPU and Hard Disk Drive are concatenated and modfied with an MD5. The procedure above will need to be repeated if hardware configuration changes.
