password authentication

Pardon all my questions, but migration to Big Sur is proceeding a bit haltingly. Your 3.5-beta3 seems to be working very well, but I have a question about copying without password authentication.

On the setup panel, one sees a lock with the words "Click to allow copying without password authentication." See screen shot below. Yes, I want to do overnight backups, so I sure don't want to have to authenticate in the middle of the night. I've responded to that, and still, somehow, I wake up in the morning to find SuperDuper asking me to authenticate the backup as an administrator before it starts doing it.

But what is funny is that you don't really know if you've allowed copying without password authentication. Is that true if the lock is open, or is it true if the lock is closed? How do I know that I have, in fact, allowed copying without password authentication? Would be nice to make that more self-evident.

In my previous implementation, it just always worked. I never had to worry about it.
