Creating Ms Access System tables

Last Modified: 2018-01-08
Hi All Experts

We are all aware that the MS Access is not all good where security is concerned, now for those who have created their own login forms for users, some will agree with me that we normally use a table with some basics columns in it as follows:

(1) PK
(2) User Name
(3) Password
(4) User rights

Normally this table is found in the BE .

My question is that , what is the danger  if we make this table as a System table and move it to the FE since we are able to lock navigation pane, cant this table much safer there? We are able to protect linked tables , queries and macros by locking the navigation pane , couldn't it be an opportunity to do the same with this login table?????
