In case, if you decide to use different user context to connect to SharePoint when running the scheduled task, you can do so by storing the SharePoint user context for future use.

XPlica will store the user credential to connect to SharePoint in the Microsoft Windows Stored User Names and Passwords applet / Credential Manager for security reasons. The stored user profile is tied to the user context (currently logged on user account) in which the profile is created.
