So, the module doesn't lock immediately once the cable is removed form the diagnostics port? I find that very interesting from a security standpoint. I figured that VW was only allowing this for their device because that company does keep track of what you changed. If that's he case then what's to stop someone from buying one of those devices just to unlock a module then plug in their VCDS cable and make all the changes they want?Again, they cannot actually keep track of changes that way. You can use one product to do the unlock, and then a different one to make changes. See post #207 in this thread.
To put this another way: Once the door is open, they have no means to know who goes through it during the time it is open.
