Question: Can someone access the audio files on my DS-5000 id if the device is locked with a PIN code and or my fingerprint?
Yes, unfortunately, the Olympus DS5000id does not offer real time encryption, therefore; if you dictate into a DS5000id, you can take the SD card out and access the recordings from a card reader or by inserting the SD card into another recorder.
If you need real time encryption, consider the Philips LFH-9600 DPM.
